Assange: Taxation Is Slavery
Some people have speculated that Assange’s support for the Pauls is out of ignorance. In fact, it seems to be a rational decision to support people who share his reactionary political views:
Non-violence: don’t force people to put a bullet at the barrel of a gun to serve in the U.S. Army. Non-violence: don’t extort taxes from people to the federal government with the policemen. Similarly other aspects of non-violence in relation to abortion.
The qualification that it’s federal taxation that’s a racket is a nice touch. Apparently, the federal government coercing women to carry pregnancies to term is just fine, though…
