better example

A better comparison would be to the protection "services" provided by the mafia. Taxation is precisely the same as mafia extortion.
There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.

Taxes are not levied for the benefit of the taxed.
