Keys1337 writes: In a manner somewhat reminiscent of Feynman’s method of describing QED by summing vectors, I describe how mass, velocity, the ticking of clocks and gravitation can be described using geometry and summing discrete vectors and vector magnitudes. The resulting model agrees completely with Einstein’s special relativity and provides an attractive Machian alternative to general relativity which agrees with tests of general relativity.

Or they keep working the same amount because their employer doesn't allow them to go from 40 hours to 39.6 hours, which is the scale of the effect you're talking about.

So only 1% of your earnings go to the gov't? Most of us aren't so lucky. Large gov't is funded by the time and efforts of tax payers. If you didn't have to pay taxes I guarantee your life would be different and you would have a lot more freedom with your time and earnings.

Also, "The larger government is, the fewer choices the individual has" is not obvious and requires a ton of proof.

The larger gov't is the more money it costs which means you spend your time working to send your money to the gov't. While you are working you are not free to do what you want.
