This is episode 117 of You, Me, and BTC – your liberty and Bitcoin podcast! Apologies for the delay on this one. Easter set us back a bit.
This is another one of those darned philosophical episodes. You're about to hear us ask way too many questions and provide way too few answers, but heck, we had fun. John kicks things off with some thoughts about opting out of the system. Is it morally necessary? Or does the risk of punishment make it acceptable for us to tolerate and appease our oppressors?
Then all that will get us going on taxes. If we assume that taxes result in force, violence, and murder, is it wrong to pay them? What if we add the assumption that we are basically slaves to the government? Does that mean we're not responsible for those sins because we are forced to pay taxes? Is it still commendable NOT to pay them?
Like we said, lots of questions - and this is just the beginning. Tune in for a crazy show! Your hosts are Daniel Brown, Tim Baker, and John Stuart. Enjoy!
Leave a comment and tell us if you think it's wrong to pay taxes!
