Over the years I have had many heated arguments with "tax planners". Always it gets to the same core point: the state has no right to have my cash. Big Government is a moral bad and, worse, will necessarily squander my money on ill-conceived projects creating welfare dependency – for that is what governments do. I can spend my money better than it can. I am the buccaneering libertarian fighting an important moral battle in avoiding tax.
It is this ideology, generated and fanned by American neoconservatives, that the tax avoider tells him or herself as they purchase or devise the latest scheme.
When someone cannot tell the difference between neoconservatives and neoliberals then you know that whatever else they\’ve got to say can safely be ignored.
