Abstract
Murray I. Franck responds to Larry Sechrest's article "Rand, Anarchy, and Taxes" (Journal of Ayn Rand Studies, Fall 1999). 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
