27. If I may hazard a guess, that doesn't sound right

The government wants that money now.

Even if it were the case, we should expect it to change. The agenda of the oligarchs is to avoid taxes by shifting the burden on to the rest of us.

Which brings us back to why a tax strike is a good idea. Not only do the oligarch want to shift that burden to the lower classes, but they don't want the lower classes to complain. The most obvious way the people can complain is to vote for progressive, populist candidates. Therefore, obstacles to voting are put in place with fear of voter fraud given as the reason. Even if the statistics show that few charges for voter fraud are brought against anyone, the oligarchs' spokesmen will go on teevee and repeat the charge over and over again without making any attempt to disprove what the statistics strongly suggest, viz., that voter fraud is not a serious problem.

How is this not taxation without representation?

Of course, the establishment will say this is illegal and blah, blah, blah. Of course it is. Whit part of massive civil disobedience do they not understand?
