A Quote by Mark Skousen on society, civilization, taxation, failure, totalitarian state, success, and voluntary society

Taxation is the price we pay for failing to build a civilized society. The higher the tax level, the greater the failure. A centrally planned totalitarian state represents a complete defeat for the civilized world, while a totally voluntary society represents its ultimate success.
