Is there nation in the world where you can out-right own the land and owe no taxes on it?
Not that I know of, but this is a good question to research. I am interested in the same thing. It seems like someone else wants a land owner to pay some kind of tax so they can monitor what you have or what you do with what you have as far as land goes. This makes me wonder if anyone owns anything at all really. If people are always paying someone else for something they supposedly own, is it the person they pay that truly owns it? If you don't pay tax in some places the land can be taken away from you by force until you pay up what is owed. In some countries the government owns the land, but common people can lease or rent it. If the government "aka" the richest thuggish people decide where you live can benefit them, they will tell you to move or they will move you out by force. The United States calls it eminent domain. Usually in the U.S the common person is offered way less than what the property is worth to move off of it before the take by force option is applied. There use to be a day and age where a person or group of people could find beautiful fertile land and live there with little worries and no tax. Then so called progress came into effect and everything is taxed for one reason or another. I hope you find your tax free nation as far as land ownership goes wjlambert.
Thanks for the comment Amethystraven. My primary interest is in the future to have no concern for taxes sans occupation. But I've come to realize that there is a way to check the balance, by interest in ownership of other things (stocks, etc...)

Do parents own their children?This question can be interpreted in different ways; I'm open to reading what this means to everyone in their own personal responses. I've thought about this myself for years, first as an adolescent and now as a young adult. I've pondered it in different contexts and...

I am utterly convinced that we shall never again see a truly limited government. As power corrupts so does absolute power corrupt absolutely. Our Presidents demand more power. Our Congress legislates new power ignoring the will of the people. Our courts interpret new powers. Sooner or later a...
