Left-minarchism: a proposal

Conservatives say that government is too big and that we need to shrink it. (I might add that they hypocritically want to expand the military while downsizing the rest.)
Progressives say that government is too small and that we need to expand it to take care of the people.
I personally believe that they're both right, but that their respective solutions are terrible.

Drawing on the non-aggression principle (NAP) and its corollary the non-violence principle (NVP), as well as the geoist axiom that natural resources cannot be owned, I propose that:
  1. The current government should be replaced with a minimal state.
    1. The executive branch should be restricted to maintaining law and order and providing the common welfare.
    2. The judicial branch should do its duties in securing justice.
    3. The legislative branch should be made up of a series of councils of up to 5,000 people, divided by district, then county, then state, then federal. Decisions should only be unanimous.
  2. The current welfare system should be replaced with a universal, unconditional basic income scheme.
  3. The government should be funded through the only just taxes: the natural-resources value tax and the 100% estate tax (as nobody can own anything when they're dead).

This should make for a very satisfactory and liberty-abiding government.
I might write more on this later, but for now I'm tired.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the
screen in Firefox. I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet
browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Thanks
