Rent is due and the landlord is knocking.
After doing our episode on the theory that taxation is theft, we came across this one. That’s not to say that all who think taxation is theft also subscribe to the idea that rent is theft, but rather that the research of one led to the discovery of the other. This idea seems to take on many forms as most modern philosophical ideas tend to, and to help us break this down, we brought in another local philosopher, who subscribes to this idea, Will Schnack of the blog, podcast, and book Evolution of Consent. In it, we take a look at some of the forms this philosophy takes as well as how a world without “rent” would work.
