Ok, so I suspect this thread might be slightly controversial, as there are a myriad of opinions on taxation, certainly so about having one's income taxed. There are arguments for it, we live in a society, we should therefore feel obligated to contribute to it. Or, having chosen to live in a democratic state which imposes taxes, we have consented to give a portion of our income in taxation. Conversely there are arguments against it; why should money that a person has worked hard to earn be arbitrarily expropriated? Or, why should I have to pay for another person's ills? Whilst their position might be unfortunate, that isn't my responsibility. To put it briefly, I want to know what the community's views are on it; do you support or oppose it, or do you have no opinion. Regardless, I look forward to hearing people's views.
