Rand on abolishing drug law and taxes

by Stephan Kinsella on March 1, 2010

A “friend” and I were discussing Rand — he said that though Rand said she opposed taxes, “eliminating taxes is among the last reforms Rand would make”. I don’t recall this–instead, I seem to recall she said this about abolishing drug prohibition. Anyone know where there is a cite or quote for either contention?

“Taxes should be voluntary contributions for the proper governmental services which people do need and therefore would be and should be willing to pay for — as they pay for insurance. But, of course, this is a problem for a distant future, for the time when men will establish a fully free social system. It would be the last, not the first, reform to advocate.”

I don?t know if finest practices have emerged round issues like that, but I’m sure that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both girls and boys really feel the impact of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.
