Government ARE the terrorists

Cypherpunks, some high-tech libertarians, and various others think crypto-anarchist technology will eliminate the need for government ( then outright eliminate government.) Convicted tax evader Jim Bell proposes a system of anonymous ecash awards for the murder of “aggressors”, such as IRS agents. See also ‘Crypto-Convict Won’t Recant’.
This system, going viral, would quickly force all governments to operate secretly rather than openly.
I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe- "That government is best which governs not at all"
