use taxes are fair-stuff like gasoline taxes, hunting licenses, etc
sales taxes are mainly fair
progressive income taxes are extortion and are an extra-constitutional power grab by congress using "divide and conquer". everyone should be able to keep the same percentage of the next dollar they earn. No group should be able to increase the taxes of another group while suffering no loss of wealth or income themselves
In modern society, it is difficult to believe someone could be educated without being able to absorb written information. But many societies, in the course of history, had very wise individuals who could not read. If I recall correctly, until Seqoia developed it, most Native Americans had no writing. Were some of those people educated? of course. Many harvard PhDs would starve to death if you put them in a 40,000 acre forest alone and with no modern communication devices. IN that situation, those men would be UNEDUCATED. Now a Shawnee or Huron in the same situation would probably have been far more educated on how to feed himself, make a shelter, and find his way back to his people
In answer to the question "Is taxation slavery"? No its not but if one is taxed to the point where said income is made just for the said taxation then yes it is.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
He also said literacy = education, and the proof he posted said it does not.

No Lives Matter
When I was accepted into two top colleges-my father, a top graduate of the Yale School of engineering-reminded me to never confuse being intelligent with being well educated for many people who are well educated are not intelligent and many brilliant men have had little in the way of schooling.
education includes schooling-but it is much more than that.
