RECENTLY ON TOL:

It has long been my opinion that the taxation of the citizens is optional: If a member of a community wants to avoid paying a TAX they can make a social contribution that otherwise offsets that tax.
I would like to know how others feel about this concept, since I have "justified' my high taxes (or low tax and high social contribution) and reconciled with my self that it's a given that those with significant incomes are expected in an advanced social infrastucture to reciprocate to the community that supports their prosperity by either paying taxes OR making community reinvestment.
