Notice that such taxes - including sales and income tax - punish
specialization, and so increase our isolation from one another.

Taxes should be against the excessive holding of finite resources such
as land, water, petroleum, minerals, etc - so it would be difficult
for any one person to own more of these than they need for their own

We would then need to organize to co-own those finite resources in a
collective manner in small clusters for the purpose of sharing the
costs of that production and to have real control of the outputs
without paying tribute to others.

Dis-Tribute == Without-Tribute
