(Aside: don’t even think about it. I’m talking to you, reading out there, who was just about to comment or was thinking that taxes aren’t theft. They are, and it’s a simple matter of getting your head out of your ass. What the government does is perfectly and clearly understood as theft if anyone else does it. There is no moral principle in the universe, upon which it can be rationally argued that the slightest right accrues to any given group of people — as in: government — that has not already accrued to individuals. If you don’t see that, then you’re simply part of perpetuating a very large problem.)
One thing in the report doesn’t make sense. If he didn’t file — i.e., report to the state what the state is to then steal from him under pain of "interest," penalties, "interest" and penalties on the "interest" and penalties, jail time, and/or death — should he insist upon uncompromisingly defending himself from being unjustly captured, held against his will, and imprisoned for merely defending his property — then how is he to have…
The charges allege Mr. Snipes failed to file tax returns
between 1999 and 2004, and conspired with two men to defraud the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS)
You have to file to claim a "refund," which is itself an obnoxious use of the language. Getting money back that has been stolen is not getting a "refund." It’s recovery. Aside from the ethical question of whether it’s morally justifiable to steal from a thief in self-defense, assuming the charges somehow turn out to be true, I just though that was the greatest oxymoron I’ve yet seen in my whole life: "defraud the Internal Revenue Service." We’re talking about an organization responsible for stealing trillions of dollars of productivity from men, women, children, families, and businesses going back over 100 years. We’re talking about an institution that, in actuality, is magnitudes worse than all criminals ever prosecuted in this country for any crime combined. The productivity they have utterly destroyed is gone forever, as is the ever-expanding compounding of such productivity. It’s incalculable; it’s as incalculable as counting the stars in the heavens.
There is simply no way to imagine where our economy, our individual wealth, our technology, our lifespans, or our culture would be had it not been for this thieving and murdering regime.
