|@Telessar: a human?
@Fieldy: I donít know specifically about Pythagoras, most likely he was using public infrastructure: defense, roads, agora, writing, libraries, etc., which all used public effort. Even the cases that are Ďcompletelyí tax free are the slavery ones, and thatís a public institution too.
Yeah, math comes closest in this ridiculous thought experiment, but even those developments most likely do not occur in vacuum. My point with this, is that the libertarian view of Ďprivateí achievement tends to be heavily biased and in my view arbitrary. (This says nothing against individual achievement, or about governments being good or bad by nature. Just about utility.)
