    Just cause? A just cause is up to the individual to decide when it deals with his labor and his property.

    Oh please. While there is a subjective nature to it, there are areas of societal agreement. This is the core of ethics, agreed upon behavior (even when it doesn't line up with one individual's personal morals).

    Again, a dictionary would be helpful.

    Nonsense. Taxation without representation was all about fairness. Lack of fairness is what often leads to laws. So, people do seem to recognize it.

    Social agreement on a matter doesn't make the words fair or fairness any less subjective.

    Taxation without representation is not in the constitution.

    Your being myopic and nit trying to never stand what's being said. Take a deep breath. People live together without ever reading the Constitution or any document and the rules if behavior hey live under dominates o matter what is written anywhere.

    But you mix things up in our discussion. Ours started based on how people treat those who break social conventions or unwritten laws. They'll do that despite written laws of any kind.

    What are you taking about. If you serve them, they pay. No one suggest otherwise.

    If you talk about you breaking he law, that's a penalty and not a service.
