But you cant compare taxation to theft.
The definition of a state is "an entity with a monopoly of force over a given territory." Thus, the means of support for that state rest entirely on coercion: state agents demand people give their money to the government, otherwise force will be invoked. The only difference between the above mentioned state of affairs and theft is that the latter can be prosecuted.
People ARE entitled to basic necessities under Catholic thought.
Yes, hence why families, including extended families, should take care of their own like they once did. When social security was not around, for instance, elderly people lived in the family home until they either died or had to go to the hospital. Nowadays they are secluded in nursing homes. Failing the family, the next steps would involve voluntary community arrangements, and Catholic and secular charities, which, I have no doubt, would be larger and more effectual in a stateless society. Hospitals, for example, often did not charge for services to very poor people, long before government intervened in health care.
Of course, our current debt-money war-machine system is a big problem with all of this in the first place, and until we get free money out of the hands of private bankers and usurous financiers
You are right about debt and the military-industrial complex. The problem with money is more complicated, involving the abolition of the gold standard and private currency, the Federal Reserve (and other similar National Banks in other countries), and fractional reserve banking.
It's only if the government would pay for it through Social Credit free money that it would really be feasible.
The notion of social credit is a dangerous inflationary scheme. The government cannot "create more money" without de-valuing the currency. To an extent it does this already, and that is why we are in a recession which will only become worse.
But the State very much should fund healthcare and schools too.
In Canada, the health care system is the biggest social program out there, and because services have to be rationed so severely, people die constantly while waiting for tests, examinations, and even in emergency rooms where 8-12 hour waits are commonplace. The problem with American health care is that it is entangled and constricted by a massive bureaucratic and regulatory apparatus, that, by contrast, makes purely socialist health care systems look good. However, note that the vast majority of medical advances happen in the partially privately funded United States, not in the areas of the world where health care is nearly universally socialized. The answer, of course, is to remove those regulations and eliminate the bureaucracy.
Government-run education is so poor as to not merit mention. Vouchers are only necessary in a system that already has public schools. Abolish the Department of Education and state public education, and competing private schools will actually educate, as opposed to indoctrinate. Home schooling should also be liberalized, and its standards would naturally be regulated by necessary accreditation recognition from schools and universities those students will be attending in the future.
