You really understanding of money, social organization, or the way the US economy functions.
No governments need to tax. They have always created money. Obviously, the money had to be created first, otherwise it wouldn't be in the hands of the people to pay the taxes.
Taxes are about forcing people to use the currency issued by a particular sovereignty.
There is a reason counterfeiting has always been akin to rebellion.
In the US, we also use diplomacy and military adventures to compel the world to use US dollars for international trade. The so-called 1% primarily thrive by taking a cut from the entirety of global trade, which is upwards of 100 trillion dollars a year. They certainly do not "work" for their money.
There is no difference between the private and public sector. The issue is and always has been? Who leads? Who follows? How virtuous are they? At the moment, they are all thoroughly corrupt and we exist in the US solely due to the power of our military. If China invents something fantastical like forcefields that can deflect all weapons, even nuclear devices, the US will collapse overnight.
