Okay I won't consume FDA approved foods and medicines since they have such a deplorable record of promoting healthful diets, non-GMO foods, and medicines that don't kill hundreds of thousands of people even when properly prescribed. I also won't call the police since they have no obligation to protect me and have only proven themselves to violate people's rights and not solve any of the crimes I've been a victim of. I won't use public schools because they are indoctrination camps designed to engineer humans into cattle that are easily susceptible to government propaganda. It's not so much being against taxes as it is being against the principle that if I don't pay them, I am threatened with imprisonment and violence. That does not sound like a free society. The market is capable of providing all of the goods and services you have listed and it used to do so successfully. The government did not always provide ANY of these things and people managed to live just fine. Stop loving your enslavement. Machiavelli wrote that the best way to control people above all others is to make them dependant.

I don't like the idea of having to pay taxes either. But you can't deny they do go towards needed services.
I would like to know why taxes have been paid to governments since the ancient Egyptians? Could it be that by collecting taxes Armies were funded that protected the civilians of the time?
You say we never had ANY of these things yet history proves that false.
There is such a thing as too much taxes (Americans used that as a reason to break free from England), but what happened after we became united? We had to have taxes to provide the funding necessary funding for establishing and governing our new society.
To blanket blame all police forces is just too general. I'm sure you've had bad experiences with cops. many people do. But think about what it would be like with no cops - the gangsters (from the Crips to the Neo Nazis) would terrorize people even more than they do now.
Oh, I suppose you could buy an automatic weapon and wait for the day when you have to shoot it out. Of course civilization as we know it now, would no longer exist. I wonder how long you would survive in such a tax-free utopia?
Every man for himself hardly makes for a peaceful and productive society. Name one great civilization that had no taxes, no rules, and was a utopia. (Atlantis doesn't count)
Thanks for stopping by and making a comment.
