Here’s a good demonstration of the power of non-compliance. A gun-wielding armed robber (symbolizing the government) attempts to rob some bar patrons (tax slaves) and they simply ignore him until he goes away.
Here’s the full story from Gizmodo:
This is hilariously pitiful. An armed robber stormed a bar and demanded everyone give him their money. Usually, everyone freaks out and hands over everything they have. Not in this case. At this bar in Rotterdam, everyone ignored the robber and kept drinking.
Wait… what? Yes! Even when the robber waved his gun in their faces, everyone just went about their business of getting drunk. When the robber realized he couldn’t get money, he lowered his demands to just a pack of cigarettes. He couldn’t even get that. The barkeep just told him to get the hell out. The man with a gun was told to shut up. Just priceless. Realizing defeat, the robber finally left the bar.
BUT IT GETS BETTER.
As he leaves, the entire bar decides to chase him down. Yes, they’re chasing a man down who’s armed with a gun. The bar patrons finally catch up to the woeful robber and nab him a mile away from the bar. The police is called, the robber is arrested and the weakest robbery attempt in robbing history has been put on the Internet. At least be good at being bad, guy.
Now, if only people would do the same with the state!
