One Third Slave

Should five percent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
--The Beatles

On average, Americans must generate about four month's worth of wages in order to pay federal and state taxes. This makes the average American 1/3 slave.

Taxpayers are today's fractional slaves.

There cannot be a good tax, or a just one; therefore, every tax rests its case on political power. And the power behind every levy fattens on its collections, while the power of the individual is commensurately weakened. The ultimate of the progressive process of taxation is the absorption of all production by the state—which is the ideal of socialism.
