SO COOL! I just learned a bit ago that Eric Frank Russell's charming 1951 SF story, "And Then There Were None," is online (with the permission of Russell's estate). Long-time libertarian SF readers mostly know this one. But if you don't, enjoy the treat. This is the tale of what happens when, quite belatedly, a government expedition goes out to collect taxes from the descendants of long-scattered former Earthlings.

They arrive on one planet that was settled by folks who viewed matters of taxation and "authority" in a slightly different light ...
