Marketing to Free Staters: ‘I don’t pay taxes’

While covering the Free State Project’s annual Liberty Forum in Nashua, NHPR’s Michael Brindley interviewed one of the vendors, Jillian Battey.

Battey runs a home-based confectionery business, Stateless Sweets, while spreading her philosophy of market anarchism.

And why should a faithful libertarian buy Battey’s chocolate rather than, say, a Hershey bar? asked Brindley. “Well,” replied Battey, “I don’t pay taxes.”

"Well, I don’t fund wars, so I don’t pay taxes and nobody pays taxes when they buy my product, either. I don’t ask the government for permission to sell my own work.”
