You are quite right.
The only effective means to retract your contribution is to live
at a subsistence level on land that has very low taxes, and
start a commune where you barter services between members.
Otherwise they will tax every time labor or goods change hands
like leech on your backside til the day you go in the box.
Some tax is reasonable, but have taxes on taxes.
We get taxed after we are dead.
We are about to be taxed for our CO2 footprint.
The price of a set of tires is almost 80% tax due to the
hidden layers of taxation as it moves from raw material
to the rim on your car. This is true of most things and
some things like beer and cigarettes it is even worse.
Until ppl are angry enough to withdraw from society and cut off
their sharecropper labor to the parasites running the game,
they will be what keeps them rich as they keep sucking the life
out of what little is left of what used to be the USA.
A leech will continue to be a leech because that is its nature.
Some of these communities have sprung up around the US
and it speaks to the mythical Galt's Gulch in Ayn Rand's book.
While I do not agree with all she wrote, but withdrawing from
the game as much as possible is the only way to not be so
greatly victimized by the game.
Recently Maryland decided to raise taxes on its millionaires
massively and a full one-third of them left the state.
1/3 of millionaires bust a move
This is just the beginning, and it will progressively get worse.
At some point they will start leaving the country.
