True, taxes are partially payment for government services, but they are also part of our social compact, what Justice Holmes called "what we pay for a civilized society."

Reminds me of the Ghandi quote...

"Mr. Ghandi, what do you think of Western Civilization?"

"I think it would be a good idea."
