Voluntaryism Can’t Be “Free Stuff”

You cannot claim to support a fully voluntary society while simultaneously asserting that you have a right to certain goods and services. Such an assertion necessarily demands the enslavement of whoever is conscripted into providing the goods and services to which you claim an entitlement.

You have the right to seek out the goods and services you desire through voluntary trade or charity, but you are not entitled to *anything* which must be produced or provided by others against their will.
