Well said PraiseBob. I think it can be taken for granted what civilization is and how we actually have to pay dues to maintain it. For some reason I never hear that argument in the media. I like having clean water, roads, a sewage system, electricity, police, a fire department, laws, parks, etc. I'd hate to have to shop around for those services on craigslist to get the best deal, or try to do it on my own. Nope, happy to pay my taxes. I think of it as paying rent for civilization.
