Again with the presumption of consent, especially when such consent is simply not possible.

The fallacies in this article are legion, most are hoary old canards such as you consume so you must pay; society has decided thus; or the old perennial that if you don't like it you can leave. At no point does the author actually provide any fundamental argument that taxes are not theft, beyond of course the usual collective consent idea and that as a consequentialist he happens to like the outcomes.

I'm sure the 'criminal' use of the cryptocurrency worries them far less than their own inability to track and control it's use.

I'm sure those in NZ will remember the recent breathless news reporting about how 2016 is breaking all records for temperature. Perhaps not.

Tl;dr - difference between 2015 and 2016 was 10 times smaller than the margin of error in measurements and therefore statistically insignificant. Also the temps were almost identical to those of the last El Nino in event 1998.

The MSM are well aware of this data, as highlighted in the article for the NYT. One might ask then why they continue to misrepresent the data, especially in the current climate of fake news.

Statist: How can you think mankind is deep down honest, moral, and fair enough to govern ourselves? Sure our government is broken, but the powerful would take what they can and subjugate the weak widening the gap between haves and have nots!

Me: If mankind is deep down too dishonest, immoral, and unfair to govern ourselves, then why would you let them govern you? Why would you establish a territorial machinery of vast power and control for the most ambitious and cutthroat of them to have their go at wielding?

If the powerful will invariably take what they can and subjugate the weak, why would you clear the way, build them a castle, furnish an army, and hand them a kingdom? It's completely nonsensical.
