5 Questions to ask a Statist

Do I have the right (just claim) to impose my will on you without your consent?

Do I have the right to delegate such an act to another?

Does being part of a majority of people give me the right to impose my will on you without your consent?

Do I have the right to impose my will on you without your consent by delegating that act to an institution?

Do I have the right to impose my will on you without your consent if I, along with a majority of others, delegate that act to an institution called government?

Asking the questions in this order to someone who dogmatically believes in coercive governance may induce cognitive dissonance. Be prepared for emotive responses such as: Libtard, Conspiracy theorist, If you don’t like it move, and the old classic: if you don’t vote you can’t complain.
