1. Real Life Scenario

    Don’t moan at me about how Government spends your tax money. I don’t think they should even have it in the first place.

     
  2. Taxes are an inexorable force of nature

    I spent my work day at a training course where we discussed that there are some issues we can influence and others we can’t. This was in relation to empathising with our customers but was abstracted to the weather and taxes as things that will never change. These examples went universally unquestioned.

    For a brief moment I did consider contesting this but quickly realised this would be at great cost (effort) with very little pay off.

    On taxes, the Democrat favors a top income tax rate of 39.5%, and the Republican favors a top rate of 35%. Well, ain’t democracy grand? We get to debate a whole four and a half percentage points. We better spread this system all over the world!

    I’m pretty sure this isn’t legitimate but it’s good anyway.

    Taxes are never, at no level of taxation, consistent with individual freedom and property rights. Taxes are theft. The thieves — the state and its agents and allies — try their very best to conceal this fact, of course, but there is simply no way around it.
    Obviously, taxes are not normal, voluntary payments for goods and services, because you are not allowed to stop such payments if you are not satisfied with the product. You are not punished if you do no longer buy Renault cars or Chanel perfume, but you are thrown into jail if you stop paying for government schools or universities or for Mr. Sarkozy and his pomp.
    Nor is it possible to construe taxes as normal rent-payments, as they are made by a renter to his landlord. Because the French state is not the landlord of all of France and all Frenchmen. To be the landlord, the French state would have to be able to prove two things: First, that the state, and no one else, owns every inch of France, and second, that it has a rental contract with every single Frenchman concerning the use, and the price for this use, of its property. No state — not the French, not the German, not the US-American or any other state — can prove this. They have no documents to this effect and they cannot present any rental contract.
    Thus, there is only one conclusion: Taxation is theft and robbery by which one segment of the population, the ruling class, enriches itself at the expense of another, the ruled.
