5. Don't demand government services from your taxes. Give your money and your lives to the rich and
they will do what needs to be done for you.

It always amazes me that people who buy that line don't see that "big government" is less powerful and oppressive than "big rich". We're supposed to hate "big government" and let "big rich" run our lives in stead.

The justification that anything is possible in a "free market" economy is a lie. Lack of appropriate regulation creates Advantages that oppress everyone else in every way imaginable from the minute that they exit mother's womb. The result is that there is no such thing as a free market. Markets are subsidized on the backs of those who never saw the light of day before they became slaves and markets are closely owned and run by "The Favorites".
