“What makes taxation not theft?"/"Magic.”

"What makes taxation not theft?” is a meme that has been printed on many images:

“What makes sex NOT rape? Consent.
What makes employment NOT slavery? Consent.
What makes a transaction NOT a robbery? Consent.
What makes a visit NOT an invasion? Consent.
What makes taxation NOT theft? Magical fairy dust.”


That is, taxes are taken without consent (and this equals theft). The answer “Magical fairy dust” was posted on Facebook by David Enrique Duprat on March 16, 2017.

The answer “Roads”—a government service often used to justify its existence—was posted on Twitter by Maryland Libertarian on May 3, 2017.

The answer “Imagination” was posted on Twitter by Jay Richie on June 18, 2018. 

The answer “Magic” was posted on Twitter by “phil that remains” on December 8, 2018.

“What makes mandatory vaccinations not tyranny?"/"Magical fairy dust” is a similar meme.
