I think the idea is that since Will hasn't personally agreed to and personally negotiated payment for everything that the government does, everything the government does is bad.

Basically every road should be a toll road, fire and police services should be by subscription, food safety should be handled by caveat emptor, and anyone who finds themselves temporarily in need of assistance should die in squalor. Effectively replacing a sometimes inefficient communal use of resources governed whose primary motivation is to win your approval, with a massively inefficient system where every action that of modern life that we now take for granted has to be paid for individually from people whose sole motivation is to extract as many resources from you as possible.
