I still disagree with Jeff's idea that we can tax our way to happiness. I wold gladly contribute to food banks, shelters, addiction counseling and all the other things the Jeffs need to function in the world. 



Hmm ... from the guy who doesn't want to pay your own bills for the roads you drive on.  Sure you would contribute to those.  Gotcha.  You don't want to pay for the police who protect you, but you would donate money to food and addiction centers.  You fly there all the time.

And people who would assault your house aren't worried about you calling the cops, it's your dog that scares them.  You live in a fantasy world.

I agree with your point that food and addiction centers should be voluntarily funded though, just obviously you wouldn't give them a dime

A statist is by definition a person who demands that others change so that his comfort zone is maintained.


Actually, you're describing anyone who believes they have rights. They will assert (correctly) that they have the right to prevent behaviours which they deem violate their rights.

You are not describing people who believe they have no rights. Such a person does not believe that they can prevent any behaviours from anyone.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.
