I agree that we need laws about murder, and having a police to sort things out. To be the guardians of peace.
It was just the phrasing in the grandparent post about police preventing murder.
Some make the connection that you don't need guns, because the police are there to protect you. And then making it a point when they try pass laws to outlaw/restrict guns.
Guns are power, and power should be distributed among the people. Same with money. It is power and should be distributed among the people . Only today money is centralized, by having the central bank decide the value of it. (through money creation, and interest) . It people had gold and silver in their bank, no one central bank could have the power to decide the value of your own money.
My argument about taxation, is based on the same rationale. Taxation is money, money centralized, or power centralized. Power that is going to me misused either by ignorance or malice. So in order to maximize the spread of power to the people. Taxation should be at a minimum.
With distribution comes balance, and self correction. But since our societies are not built upon distribution of power, you get unbalance, and a system unable to self correct. (eg. interest rate at 0-1%, loads of unemployment)
And I think that is an really important point most people forget about, and/or maybe fail to understand. The merits of real power distributed (gold/silver money, guns).
