It never fails to surprise me the idiocy of the "civilized society" folks and taxes. Are you saying the more civilized our society is the higher the taxes are supposed to be ?
My father of 87 remembers a time with NO personal income taxes. Does that mean we were somehow less a civilized society ? I dare say not. Most if not ALL federal income taxes go for pure bullshit that the federal government should have no business doing. I say that individuals should have no contact with the federal government, No federal income taxes. Let the interface with people be on the local or state government level and let the states interface with the feds. Let the states pay fees or whatever you want to call it to the feds to cover only what they are constitutionally allowed to do. 90% of the feds powers they have taken are 100% illegal and not constitutionally allowed. But we the sheeple over the past 100 years have allowed them to do this to US. Remember dems AND repubs are all the same animal with different spots doing the same thing to you, taking your personal freedoms away bit by bit.
