The Buzz Episode 02: Is Taxation Theft?

Happy theft day. Whoops missus, what a giveaway!

In this episode, we take a brief look at taxation — what it is, what theft is, whether or not the two have significant overlap. We also take a jaunt through American history, which is, in large part, the history of tax resistance and violent repression. Fun for the whole family!
