There is no such thing as government...

but the principle you outline is even more evident at the county level. There are *individual people* who stand to profit from "taxation," i.e., slavery/theft at the county level. These would be school teachers, tax appraisers, county commissioners, developers, road crews, sheriffs, and the list goes on. If you confront them about it, they call it "progress." And for "progress," they need a bigger "tax base." This is precisely what you call reinflation of bubbles, and they applaud that reinflation, because they view it as beneficial to themselves at the expense of others.

Don't think of it as "feeding some Beast." It is feeding the criminal parisites. Of course, they are not all criminal. A few are simply trying to bring down the system. But most of them vote and participate in and support the theft. They encourage their family to do the same and all applaud your "Beast."
