Any system based on violence is doomed to fail. You can figure out all the algorithms, voting methodologies and systems you like, but if it's not voluntary, it's a lost cause.
The world itself is based on violence, small creatures are eaten by larger ones, until the larger ones die and are themselves eaten.
The video is BS, governments provide a service like anyone else, once they stop revolutions dispose them rather quickly. People don't accept taxes because of some paper, they accept it because they somewhere believe
in their country and government.
A tax officer will not kill you even they imprison you.
A tax lets you have roads, internet, police, protecting soldiers and free food should you one day find yourself down on luck.
The problem is the US government has become corrupted and thus people are stopping to believe in them. My algorithm would avoid such corruption and hence likely this discussion about government vs. criminals.
US government = criminals = correct.
Government as a concept = criminals = false.
When people rape, murder og rob others someone
needs to step in and exert violence over the bad guys. It can NOT be avoided. What funds that is TAXES however low a libertarian might like them.
I know your next argument "private security firm". Considering the vast overprice you are paying for private health insurance in the US I think that is a really shitty idea. Let alone what happens when such a firm finds out that beating up people brings more customers!
Roads by a million different companies so you can't drive to work without a 100 stickers in your window?
The US meltdown must have melted your brains too...
All that said my algorithm/program IS voluntary, you would know if you read a few posts in the thread first. However nothing is stopping a later algorithmic government from using some level of violence. Again: natural.
