American Revolution was a tax revolt. So was Fort Sumter. The Bible and Shakespeare are full of tax stories. Even the Rosetta Stone is about taxes. Few people in history like to have their money taken by force, even if thetax collector works for a pharaoh who calls himself god.

Join us for a special Virginia seminar presented by Shenandoah Electronic Intelligence, Inc. and the Ludwig von Mises Institute, on The Trouble With Taxation, January 14–15, 2005. We’ll meet at the historic Boar’s Head Inn at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia. The conference features Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, author of How Capitalism Saved America.
