I can appreciate this. Maybe in China you can get away with a bit more without the government noticing, and in rural America too. However if I just started doing with my property what I wish, and ignored the state, it would not be long before the inspection department would show up. And they'd tell me to take it down. And if I refused it would be the police department that showed up. And if I refused to go with them they'd forcibly take me either to jail or the morgue.
I think for agorsim to be practicable you need a certain level of freedom. For instance, if the state locked everyone in a cell, ignoring the state wouldn't do you much good.
And, not that this needs to motivate everyone, but what about how the government is treating other people? I could probably get along just fine as it is and jump through their hoops and have a happy and successful life, but I am also concerned about the folks on the receiving end of the bombs our state likes to drop. It may be the case that there is nothing that can be done about that but I need to figure that out for fact first and then adjust accordingly. I personally think there are better ways to 'adjust' then getting Irwin Schiffed.
