This is a really good argument against the arbitrary power of government.
You know what would be a good argument? Your actually answering my questions instead of deflecting. It's almost like you have no substantive answers to the questions I posed...
1) Who really owns the land your home is on, and where did those ownership rights come from?
2) Who or what gave you the right or authority to buy it, and how can you prove it's yours?
3) Who enforces your claim of ownership if there's a dispute?
4) What if I don't agree to recognize that authority for what I believe to be good reason(s)? Can I dispute it by force?
5) What if there's a greater, better-armed force that disagrees with you and supports me? What then?
6) Who has the ultimate authority to decide and what specifically gives them the right to do so?
7) In #6, why does this entity's authority outweigh yours (or mine)?
8) Who or what would take the place of the police departments that keeps everyone stronger than you from stealing your stuff, and from where would they derive their legitimacy?
You can't answer these questions. No libertarian can answer these questions. (In fact, most libertarians can't even agree on a specific definition of what "libertarian" means.)
Why is it that government officials seem to have authority that outweighs ours?
Because most people realize that for society to function there needs to be some sort of entity with the absolute authority to rule on things. No, government isn't perfect by a long shot, but it's far, far better than the "might-makes-right" feudal systems that libertarianism would inevitably produce.
Are you sure you're not a libertarian?
Yeah, I'm quite sure.
Look, I've been exposed to the fuzzy reasoning and pie-in-the-sky claims of the libertarian mindset for decades and it's never made any sense.
"Enlightened self-interest" my ass. Show me anyplace on Earth where that would work given basic human nature.
