Principles of Life, Liberty and Property explained:A government cannot exist without taxation. If taxes are voluntary they’re not called taxes they’re donations or purchases. A tax is a seizure of property. Therefore, government cannot protect your property when it must first confiscate it for its very existence.If you do not allow the government to confiscate your property, they will come to your house seeking to take your liberty. They cannot protect your liberty when their existence necessitates that they take your liberty if you don’t relinquish your property.

If you attempt to physically defend your property and/or liberty when they come to take them, state agents will take your life. Guaranteed.

The state CANNOT protect your life, liberty or property when it must threaten all three in order to EXIST.

If you want to change this you can, but you must form your own nation like America’s founding fathers did, and contrary to popular opinion this had nothing to do with the Revolutionary War.

All that’s required is a competent understanding of The Law of Nations. This knowledge is what separates citizens from those who make up the “body of a nation” as defined in:

The Law of Nations or the Principles of Natural Law (1758) Emmerich de Vattel

BOOK 1, CHAPTER 1 Of Nations or Sovereign States

§ 32. It may reform the government.

“If any nation is dissatisfied with the public administration, it may apply the necessary remedies, and reform the government. But observe that I say “the nation;” for I am very far from meaning to authorize a few malcontents or incendiaries to give disturbance to their governors by exciting murmurs and seditions. None but the body of a nation have a right to check those at the helm when they abuse their power. When the nation is silent and obeys, the people are considered as approving the conduct of their superiors, or at least finding it supportable; and it is not the business of a small number of citizens to put the state in danger, under the pretense of reforming it.”

The process is known as “exercising the right of self-determination”. For example, America’s founding fathers exercised the right of self-determination (except they committed three separate and distinct acts of war when they went about it the wrong way).

Cornell University Law School’s Wex Dictionary defines it:

“Self-determination denotes the legal right of people to decide their own destiny in the international order. Self-determination is a core principle of international law, arising from customary international law, but also recognized as a general principle of law, and enshrined in a number of international treaties. For instance, self-determination is protected in the United Nations Charter and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights as a right of “all peoples.”

The scope and purpose of the principle of self-determination has evolved significantly in the 20th century. In the early 1900’s, international support grew for the right of all people to self-determination. This led to successful secessionist movements during and after WWI, WWII and laid the groundwork for decolonization in the 1960s.

Contemporary notions of self-determination usually distinguish between “internal” and “external” self-determination, suggesting that “self-determination” exists on a spectrum. Internal self-determination may refer to various political and social rights; by contrast, external self-determination refers to full legal independence/secession for the given ‘people’ from the larger politico-legal state.”

United Nations Charter CHAPTER I: PURPOSES AND PRINCIPLES Article 1 The Purposes of the United Nations are: …”2) To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace;…”

International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights PART I Article 1 Clause 1. “All peoples have the right of self-determination. By virtue of that right they freely determine their political status and freely pursue their economic, social and cultural development.”

This strikes me as a profoundly simple concept – and attainable; as opposed to, say trying to change a system of government which has taken upon a life of its own and not within the power of citizens to influence. It is the only solution when governments become tyrannical.
