 Taxation is Robbery, by Frank Chodorov
Until recent times taxation rested its case on the need of maintaining the necessary functions of government, gener­ally called "social services." But, such is the nature of polit­ical power that the area of its activity is not self-contained; its expansion is in proportion to the lack of resistance it meets.
Taxation is now justified not by the need of revenue for the carrying on of specific social services, but as the necessary means for un­specified social betterment.
Since taxation, even when it is clothed with social betterment, must be accompanied with compulsion, the limits of taxation must coincide with the limits of political power.
