The Road to Serfdom

“Can these be the same people who claim that paying tax is akin to forced labour and theft? Surely not!”

You enter into agreements to earn your income, and many poor have done hard labor to earn income to put into savings until they have enough to invest higher. Literally thousands of Cubans arrived in the U.S. during 1959 and the 1960s literally penniless. Literally.

Claiming you’re not forced to engage in taxable agreements is now dead, as the thieving philosophy underlying the income tax has been exposed by John Roberts himself, a “rightist” exposed as “leftist” and wealth confiscator.

Claiming you can always leave the country is an argument from ignorance, because the U.S. makes claims on expatriate that reaches farther than almost all of them.

That’s why taxes are theft. Try leaving without paying your fiefdom share of the crop to the “nobles” who expect it in return for all the blessings of government they provide.

Hence the title of Hayek‘s book “Socialism: The Road to Serfdom“.
