The last time I checked, pure Anarchy (the absence of all form of government, and all public services) does not exist anywhere on the Earth. This means, yes you have to collect some amount of reasonable taxes.
Now who do you think should pay those taxes, the POOR people? Of course not.
The RICH Elites are the ones who should be paying the damn taxes, and the big problem in our Country is that the RICH elites get off easy, while the working folks get screwed.
If we stopped all the Corporatism, and all the Dirty Wars, and strung the Banksters up by their balls, we could then feed the entire World, and the injustice of this (otherwise hopeless) crying planet would be gone.
