Noble Stockholm Syndrome 

25 Dec

“Proud To Pay My Taxes”I still notice some people saying, “I’m proud to pay my taxes!” And it’s still pathetic, for several reasons.

1) Being “proud” that you did something you were FORCED to do is absurd. If you voluntarily contribute to the well-being of your fellow man, great. But it’s not charitable–you get no credit for compassion or generosity–if you had no choice in the matter. Taking “pride” in being robbed is looney.

2) Unless you completely approve of everything “government” does, then being “proud to pay your taxes” means being proud to pay for things that YOU oppose, and think are a bad idea. How much of a schizo do you have to be to express pride in funding things you don’t even want or like?

3) Even regarding the “government” services you want (ignoring how inefficient and wasteful “government” always is), why feel “proud” to pay for a service? Is it especially noble and selfless to BUY STUFF?

4) If you think giving money to politicians constitutes “contributing to society,” you’re delusional. Getting robbed by a carjacker, or just flushing your money down the toilet, does far less harm to society than “paying taxes.”

If you are “proud to pay taxes,” look up “Stockholm Syndrome.” You only feel “pride” because you were TRAINED to feel loyalty to your political masters, and to feel good about blindly obeying their “laws” and paying the tribute they call “taxes.” That doesn’t make you a good person. It makes you a good slave.“
