Is taxation moral?


Extortion is the practice of obtaining something, especially money, through force or threats. Taxation is the practice of obtaining money through force or threats. It is immoral to take someones money through force or threats. When the government does it, few people so much as bat an eye. Yet we're being extorted into paying for illegal wars, subsidies for massive corporations, bailouts for banks, collective enslavement through national debt, and so on. What are your thoughts on this? Please don't respond saying, what about roads, healthcare, police, firemen, etc.This is a moral question.
