I appreciate the enthusiastic reply

And I appreciate the attention that you gave my comment. This is a conversation that I am very interested in; I study this topic every day.

"If you were forced to live under the mafia, or a cartel, you may not choose to oppose the cartel, which could get you killed or imprisoned. But at least explain to everyone why the mafia is wrong!"

According to who?

The willing tax payers?

The willing extortion fee providers?

I don't quite understand your questions or your reasoning. A mafia uses violence and the threat of violence to get what they want. Do you support that? Do you believe that is an ethically correct way to achieve things? If an entire town lived in fear of mafia violence, would that be wrong in your opinion? Or is it not important?

I don't understand.

The willing tax payers?

The willing extortion fee providers?

And during slavery you probably would have called them "the willing slaves?'

The reason we call them TAXES and not CHARITY or DONATION is because we HAVE TO FORCE people to pay them under threat of violence or imprisonment in a rape cage. And the reason we call it "extortion fee" instead of DONATION, is because they had to threaten violence or destruction to get you to pay.

Taxation is theft. Government is the vail that hides the word theft. Government is the vail that hides the gun that is pointed at you.
