Taxes are generally viewed as one of the more benign laws to be passed. Yeah, they take your money. But it isn’t like anyone dies over it, right?
Except that a man was choked to death by police just a couple weeks ago. What was his crime? Selling untaxed cigarettes. Any time someone says “There should be a law,” think, is this an issue that is worth killing people over? That’s what happens when something is illegal. Some cops will use whatever force is necessary to enforce that law, and that means people will be murdered. Their job is not to protect you, it is to protect government authority. There are decent people amongst police officers, except even the best frequently cave to the corrosive environment that is modern law enforcement.
