Cicero 54 B.C.

• Daily
 "We are taxed in our bread and our wine, in our incomes and our investments, on our land and on our property not only for base creatures who do not deserve the name of men, but for foreign nations, complaisant nations who will bow to us and accept our largesse and promise us to assist in the keeping of the peace - these mendicant nations who will destroy us when we show a moment of weakness or our treasury is bare, and surely it is becoming bare! We are taxed to maintain legions on their soil, in the name of law and order and the Pax Romana, a document which will fall into dust when it pleases our allies and our vassals.

In the past we have been taxed because THEY are organized, not because they are more numerous than we. Their strength was in their organization. When we wanted to be set free, we organized ourselves to fight THEM and we had to tax ourselves to get organized. It became a thing of who collected the bigger tax, THEM or US. Then the organizers among us joined together with THEM secretly, and we were sold as slaves.

This time it will be different. Why? Because Internet programming is fun. Programming creates an organized mind. Programming is done often for free and offered for free. This time we are going to out-organize THEM every which way because fundamental freedom is ours through the Internet.
