Abolish Income Taxes Now

Back in 2020 (see here), I wrote: “Why do we still allow the federal government (and many State governments) to tax our physical and mental labor, which is what an “income tax” basically amounts to? Go ahead and tax my capital gains, or my leisure activities, or my property, or my inheritance, or my wholesale or retail purchases, but for goodness’ sake, stop taxing my labor! Simply put, I don’t need a bunch of fancy jargon to obfuscate the self-evident truth that taxing people’s work is regressive and unjust–the moral equivalent of theft or forced labor. At the very least, the first $100,000 of one’s earnings should be tax free. What am I missing here? (PS: If you Google the phrase “abolish the income tax,” some very interesting things will pop up!)”
