Why do we pay taxes to our government?
Because there are jobs that make more sense
when they are done at national level.
organizing schools, hospitals, police, army, transport;
paying teachers, doctors, policemen, soldiers for doing their job.
maintaining the infrastructure needed for these jobs;
Just to name a few.
I am so glad that I don’t need to pay
the teacher for my children learn to read and write,
the production costs of a vaccine,
a fee to every thieve for not robbing me,
a toll fee for every road I use.
But why do we still pay license fees for
listening to music recordings
or using a software product?
