Just a bit, man. Of course, there are the crazy internet libertarians who think taxation is actually theft, and that the majority can at no point force you ethically to participate in society. I'm not one of those. For me, it's a philosophy which seeks to answer, 'How can government, which is by nature a loss of autonomy, minimize it's negative impact while providing an appropriate level of function and service to its people?'
