Threat of sending Buffett to jail

Eric Englund writesTo be sure, I adhere to what Murray Rothbard stated in his magnificent book The Ethics of Liberty:

If, then, taxation is compulsory, and is therefore indistinguishable from theft, it follows that the State, which subsists on taxation, is a vast criminal organization far more formidable and successful than any "private" Mafia in history. Furthermore, it should be considered criminal not only according to the theory of crime and property rights as set forth in this book, but even according to the common apprehension of mankind, which always considers theft to be a crime”.
