I grew up in Finland which also takes care of it’s people, but I still feel that taxation is theft.

Thanks for the clarifications.

I’ll quickly add to the first point.

Indeed, I would probably also end up with more money if I did not have to pay taxes: I’m in the upper income bracket of the equation. Yet, my ideological beliefs make that I’m fine with this. Due to this wealth redistribution, lower income people actually don’t have to worry about getting cancer and going to the hospital. I temporarily live in Korea now and I would be very scared of getting cancer here if I did not contracted an expensive private insurance.

As for the other points, let’s just be happy to disagree in our ideologies.

Thanks for this brief exchange. It’s different from the usual circle-jerking on Medium to get claps from likeminded people.

Take care.
