Don’t pay your rent (real estate taxes) & see what happens.
Real estate taxes due in cash are what forces the owner to stay in the cash economy with a job and a taxable income (you can’t pay your taxes in chickens & grain anymore). Being forced to generate cash forces us to pay income taxes, which makes us all tax cattle.
With real estate taxes we can never be truly free men. We can never get off the treadmill. We can never stop funding the Beast.
The government needs you for your money so that it can finance the corporatist police state. It extracts your money at gunpoint so that it can give it to the big businesses that bend government to its will by writing laws favorable to them and unfavorable to… to… come on, you know who… YOU!
It needs evermore of your money because government grows like cancer.
The bureaucrats sit around all day writing more laws, rules and regulations. The growing list of laws means that an ever growing number of citizens run afoul of these laws with increasing regularity. That growing number of laws being broken require ever more armed enforcers, resulting in more arrests, more fines, more civil forfeitures, more incarcerations and every more people under judicial supervision on parole & probation, which most will inevitably violate resulting in more fines and more imprisonment. Rinse & repeat. Its cancer pure & simple.
If you pay taxes you fund the mechanism of your own oppression.
