Taxation of earnings from labor is on a par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone’s labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities.

Robert Nozick

After all…Marx suggested we cannot/should not be alienated from our labor. The money I make is my labor made manifest; the objects bought with it, the same. Property isn’t theft, as Proudhon said, it’s a physical manifestation of your work.

And like you body, it’s not the property of a king, or a dictator, or an elected government. It’s yours to give; it’s not theirs to take.
