I was late to see the taxman, through nobody's fault but my own. I was given the news that I too must become a tax collector, because if I don't, the number crunchers will one day find me and take a WHOLE BUNCH of money from me at once.
What becomes of a country that makes all it's citizens into tax collectors? I know that in Bible times such men were hated, and I suppose it is still true. Feed the nations coffers by making it's citizenry hate one another... this doesn't sound to me like a recipe for peace and prosperity.
