Oldfilibuster’s Rhyme & Reason – E25 – Taxation

Today it’s all about taxes throughout history and the poor fools who beggared themselves in order to pay them. Taxation has a long history, and from biblical tales to popular culture, tax collectors have never ranked highly on the list of revered practitioners.  Join me on a journey of bizarre taxes, imposed on the 90 per cent of the poorest by the 10 per cent of the richest, to pay for unjust wars, lavish lifestyles and vanity projects to name but a few.
