Voluntaryism, or voluntarism, is generally considered to be the philosophy which holds that all forms of human association should be voluntary.
The principle most frequently used to support voluntaryism is the non-aggression principle.
Many voluntaryists base their thinking on the ideas of voluntaryist philosophers Murray Rothbard and Robert LeFevre. Rothbard maintained, first, that every government “presumes to establish a compulsory monopoly of defense (police and courts) service over some geographical area. So that individual property owners who prefer to subscribe to another defense company within that area are not allowed to do so”; and, second, that every government obtains its income by stealing, euphemistically labeled “taxation”. “All governments, however limited they may be otherwise, commit at least these two fundamental crimes against liberty and property.”
