    I'm still not seeing why a person would have to leave his current location to simply exit a voluntary association. People enter into and leave relationships all the time. It doesn't require that they leave their current location.

    Taxation is just another just another form of theft. The only difference is that it is the government doing the stealing.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    That was made very very clear to you in my first reply.
    I see. So it would be unethical for me to take your TV and give it to someone, but it would be ethical for me to tax you and give the money to someone.

    Because this is about much much much more than simply location. But then, that has been repeatedly explained to you so instead of attempting to refute it you adopt the ostrich position and pretend.

    The definition you provided for me stated accepted rules of behavior. Taxation by the duly elected peoples government acting under the laws of the land is normal - taking my TV is not.

    Your explanation is lacking. You don't explain why leaving a relationship would require that anyone move anywhere.

    My explanation was detailed and clear. In this case it is not the singer nor the song but the listener who is willingly deaf to hearing the music.

    So why does leaving a relationship with other people require moving from one's current location?

    What does "this is about much much much more than simply location" actually mean? If it's not about location, then what IS it about? You said something about an individual entering into relationships with other individuals. Is that what it's about?
