“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

What Would Real Tax Reform Look Like?
by L. Neil Smith
Taxation most likely began ten thousand years ago, when nomadic hunter-gatherers gave up their wandering ways—and the tools associated with them—settled down, and started growing crops and herding livestock, which requires an entirely different suite of tools than hunting. The hunter-gatherers’ tools could be used as weapons because that’s essentially what they were—ask any mastodon—the farmers’. could not. As a result, anti-productive marauders who had been held off by the hunters’ tools (or the ability of the hunters and their families to escape and evade) took advantage of those who were stuck to the plots of land they had learned to farm with clumsy agricultural implements (which could not be wielded as easily by females, relegating them to a subordinate role for fifty centuries), and forced to to pay tribute to the bandits. Go take another look at the 1960 movie masterpiece https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000059TFW/webleywebdesignk/The Magnificent Seven for illustration. The thieves eventually learned to call themselves ”government” and the goods they stole, “your fair share”.
