    Well, yes, this seems a sensible enough proposition

    The sentiment that was often expressed, including quite openly at conferences by well-known lawyers of the period, was that all taxation was theft. Their consequent suggestion was that they were quite entitled to undertake transactions in any form that they could to prevent that theft from taking place.

    Unsurprisingly, I found that opinion abhorrent. Implicit within it was the idea that the state was malign. It is necessarily implied that the law was imposed. It presumed that government was always in opposition to private interests.

    That’s why they put you in jail if you don’t pay your taxes, right?

    Why there have to be tax campaigners who make sure people pay taxes, right?
