Description 

Frank Chodorov was an extraordinary thinker and writer, and hugely influential in the 1950s. He wrote what became an American classic arguing that the income tax, more than any other legislative change in American history, made it possible to violate individual rights, one of the founding principles.

He argues that income taxes are different from other forms because they deny the right of private property and presume government control over all things. The introduction is by former IRS commissioner J. Bracken Lee.

Political Economy for Novice and Doctor Alike
One of the most useful works for the scholar seeking the most thoroughly distilled logical arguments against the presumptions of the state. Very much in the logical mode of Frederic Bastiat, but, perhaps with higher levels of simplicity, political potency, and specificity-- which is truly saying something. Chodorov's biblical perspective is a surprisingly poignant touch.
