I've greatly expanded my post John Locke and the Kehilla's Right to Assess Tzedaqa. I completely reorganized several parts of it, to have a more logical order, I divided it into discrete sections, I answered many objections from others, and I elaborated on my own beliefs and proofs.
I even retitled it from "John Locke and the Kehilla's Right to Assess Tzedaqa" to "Religious Coercion, or On John Locke and the Kehilla's Right to Assess Tzedaqa" to reflect the fact that I deal with religious coercion in general relatively extensively.
Oh, and I finally make sense to myself! I've always wondered why I'm left-wing on issues of religion but right-wing on issues of politics. Now I understand: I'm a libertarian on everything! I'm a libertarian! That's why I love Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits and Rabbi Haim David Halevy - that's why I love Rabbi Meir Kahane and Moshe Feiglin. It all makes so much sense now!
