Private Contract, Market Neutrality, And "the Morality Of Taxation"

Journal of Ayn Rand Studies 1 (3):141-159 (2000)

MURRAY I. FRANCK responds to Larry Sechrest's article "Rand, Anarchy, and Taxes" . Franck further develops his thesis that because minarchist government is essential to civil life including the market economy and because government requires material support to operate, taxation is moral. Against anarchist objections, Franck notes that taxation for legitimate purposes, though coercive, does not constitute the initiation of force
