My Daughter, the Four Year Old Libertarian

Last night I was telling the story of Robin Hood to Sabina. She's at the age where she constantly needs to stop stories to ask questions. "Why did the wicked queen want to hurt Snow White?"

As I was telling the story, I said that the Sheriff wanted to catch Robin Hood.

She interrupted again - "Why does the catcher want Robin Hood?"
"Because Robin Hood took all of his tax money to give back to the people," I said.
"But it's not his money, it's the people's money!"

Four years old and she already grasps the concept of taxation.
