Dear Statist,
If you have an opinion about music that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
If you have an opinion about evolution that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
If you have an opinion about style that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
If you have an opinion about religion that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
If you have an opinion about history that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
If you have an opinion about medicine that differs from mine, I don’t really care. I can ignore the difference and get along with you just fine.
And so on. And so on. And so on.
HOWEVER….
If you have an opinion about POLITICS that differs from mine, I can’t just ignore the difference and get along with you. Why not? Because ANY „political“ opinion that differs from mine necessarily includes you wanting men with guns FORCING me to live my life, make my choices, and spend my money according to YOUR preferences and whims. There is no such thing, and can be no such thing, as a tolerant statist. If you want peaceful coexistence, YOU have to stop advocating violent aggression against your fellow man.
Sincerely,
A Voluntaryist
