Are you addressing me too? I am no anarcho-capitalist. I may see taxes as a necessary evil, but I still see them as necessary. Taxes are common to both good and bad governments, and so it is not the existence of taxes that is the problem. Taxes can either be a cost of liberty and prosperity, or they can be the tool of slavery and poverty. Governments are amoral creatures. Libertarians may romanticise individual responsibility, but it is merely a reaction to opponents who romanticise big government and democracy.
This, however, is pure nonsense. Even pre-state societies did not spend every waking moment just trying to survive; they had members who specialised in intellectual pursuits; they created rich mythologies, charted the stars, expended energies on creating monuments. There is even a stereotype of the young artists, inventors, and intellectuals who sacrificed material well-being to pursue their hobbies and interests; some of the greatest works or art and scientific breakthroughs have come from such people. Private businesses continue to do research and development today, and there is an entire industry, employing hundreds and thousands, devoted to publishing intellectual works which the public demand.We would never have had one scientist or philosopher if we didn't have a social safety net of some sort or another to allow them to concentrate on those endeavors rather than their own survival.
The government does a lot to encourage science and philosophy, no doubt, because it subsidises it heavily. However, the notion that we would never have had one scientist or philosopher but for government and taxes? Poppycock. You may as well say that we wouldn't have roads or water or education.
