How about a picture of a typical American workplace with good worker zombies shuffling in for another day of labour underneath a giant arch that reads: Taxation Macht Frei!

As you may have noticed the #TaxationIsTheft meme has been making the rounds on the internet for the last few weeks. Well it officially went viral this week, with the hashtag trending on Twitter on #TaxationIsTheft day, aka April 18th.
[…] The idea is simple enough to understand, and has been articulated many times before. Take Lysander Spooner’s 19th century formulation of the idea:
“The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life. And many, if not most, taxes are paid under the compulsion of that threat.”
Or Judge Napolitano’s 21st century formulation: “Just as you lack the moral and legal ability to take my property, you cannot authorize the government to do so.”
