If God is love and if we need freedom to love, then it must be our duty to defend freedom to the best of our ability.

If a person steals from another, that person interferes with the other's freedom (cf., for instance, Kant: one person's freedom ends where another person's freedom begins). It is for this reason that we need a police force that protects the individual's freedom.

Who would pay for roadworks if the individual was not forced to pay taxes? Those who use the streets. When cars drive along the streets they consume gasoline. The funds to pay for roadworks could be levied along with the price of gasoline.

However, this simple theory becomes complicated when we factor cyclists into the equation: we would have to measure the distance cycled by cyclists and invoice them for it.

And what about pedestrians? Pedestrians can also handle uneven territory. As such, it would be wrong to bill pedestrians for something that they do not need.
