Damn straight. Why, in the Kalahari---before the mining corporations destroyed them---the !Kung and San had a paradise. No war, no money, nothing but storytelling and digging for roots and grubs. Very cheap living. Libertarians every one, living in their gated communities.

No, people will pay less taxes and therefore have more money and therefore
go bankrupt less often.

Every penny of taxes is robbed at gunpoint from a citizen, mind you.

You're just not used to living in a well-run society, Dan'l. Where you
live, the police are at war with the majority section of the population.

Well-run societies are inexpensive.
