  •  Well, it definitely depends on what type of (0+ / 0-)

    culture/society you want to live in. For example, I imagine may ancient Indian tribes were happier with their lives living from the land than many of us in our high-tech society today (and of course didn't have to pay taxes).

    Morevover, its sometimes hard to define what "paying taxes" is. Take, for example, people living in North Korea. It wouldn't surprise me if large portions of the population weren't required to pay taxes at all- they just get a voucher for bread once or twice a week. Still, they have streets, etc. Since everyone in this case works for the government, they still paid taxes "indirectly".

    If the public option leads the US to Communism, then maybe we should spread Democracy by sending our for profit insurers to Iraq, Af., NK, China and Cuba.
