The fruits of what eventually became this book started out simply as an article, with the same title, that exposed taxation as extortion. This uniquely spiritual and historical perspective told of each human being's innately and benevolent rights of peace, happiness, property, and liberty. The original article was written shortly after I left my spiritual mentor in the latter half of 2007. It was my attempt to summarize my realizations that compliance with tax collection was like letting yourself be robbed at gunpoint.
My conviction became even more founded when a fellow tax protester, Ned Netterville, made personal contact with me. God afforded me the ability to grow in my realization that tax is theft with this new friendship. Through Ned's unending support I was able to remain motivated throughout the entire writing process. From start to finish, the initial manuscript took approximately three weeks.
Besides Ned, I owe my unconditional gratitude to God, the One Great Power, for continually providing divine inspiration and just the right word when it was needed.
As the reader adventures from chapter to chapter, a progressive pattern is realized. The book flows in a simple and realistic way. The first half of the book, consisting of seven chapters, highlights the spiritual perspective of this expose. The latter half, which consists of chapters eight through fourteen, is the historical vantage of governments throughout history and their methods of taxation. The seventh chapter, Sovereign Individuality, is one of the most important parts. It gives the reader the tools to live a life of non-state self-governance through independence, respect, responsibility, honesty, and a keen awareness about our tax-driven world.
