The lesson to learn

The lesson to learn, IMO, is that freeing the soul was and is more important that being free from the state. If he and his disciples did not pay their taxes, then they would be in jail and could no longer teach the Gospel of Christ which had higher priority.

Staying out of jail or minimizing the stress of having the state on my back, personally, has higher priority because it allows me to function as a better father and husband, but that does not keep me from looking for every opportunity to put the state in its rightful place. Picking my battles so to speak.

as soon as the stress of paying my taxes is on par with the stress from not paying the state then I will be ready as well as many others and we will have the critical mass we yearn for. Until then, I'll continue to buy silver (and a little bit of Bitcoin) until the fraudulent fiat FRN is hosed.
