The willing slave

I just read the article found here and, while I disagree completely with the author, I found it worth a few minutes of my time. However, I made the mistake of reading the comments thread. I swear that I've never met such a group of people who seem to believe that the only reason for their continued existence is to provide more and more tax dollars to our government. The idea that people own themselves appears to be as puzzling to them as quantum mechanics is to my cat. To be fair to my cat, I can't tell if she's confused or merely bored at my pedestrian explanation.

Psst! The government is the servant and the people are the masters. Pass it on.
