Humanity's cosmic-energy income account consists entirely of our gravity-and star (99 percent Sun)-distributed cosmic dividends of water power, tidal power, wave power, wind power, vegetation-produced alcohols, methane gas, vulcanism, and so on. Humanity's present rate of total energy consumption amounts to only one four-millionth of one percent of the rate of its energy income. ...Ninety-nine percent of humanity does not know that we have the option to "make it" economically on this planet and in the Universe. We do.

Question: Would Guns and Dope attempt to eliminate all taxes ?

Answer: We'd follow Lysander Spooner's voluntary tax plan combined with the lightspeed of Internet. Every citizen would receive a semi-annual Republic budget, telling what the Republic of Freetopia wanted to do for them or to them, and each would send in their share of the fee for whatever projects seemed sensible and useful to them. Nobody would pay a penny for anything that seemed pointless, useless, invasive, tyrannical or even annoying to them. If nobody paid for a project, it would get dumped for lack of funding.

As Spooner wrote earlier: "Constitutions are utterly worthless to restrain the tyranny of governments, unless it be understood that the people will by force compell the government to remain within constitutional limits. Practically speaking, no government knows any limits to its power except the endurance of the people."

Voluntary taxation expresses the endurance of the people directly and immediately, "before the horse gets out of the stable."
