Whether you think of it as an analogy or as an accurate portrayal of the human condition, Stefan Molyneux’s controversial essay about the rise and (hopefully) fall of the tax farmer will make you think. Early humans could only produce what they consumed. There was no excess for a slave master to steal, so there was no point owning slaves. However, when agricultural improvements allowed for excess crop production, human ownership became an advantage. History tells us that early governments were in fact a ruling class of slave hunters who believed that because humans could produce more than they consumed, they were worth capturing, breaking in and owning. Early Egyptian and Chinese empires were in reality human farms where captured humans were domesticated and owned like any other livestock. – KK
