    How to Simplify the Tax Code

    It can be a challenge to keep up with all the taxes one needs to pay throughout the year, and than to deal with all the paperwork that needs to be filed can be frustrating.

Description

100 years ago, World War I began, claiming the lives of 16 million people, including 7 million noncombatants. With so much having been written in the last century, what’s left to be said about the “Great War” at this late date? Could the men responsible for the war have wrought anything like the horrors they inflicted had they not controlled a state apparatus — an army, a navy, a compulsory revenue-collection agency, and a bureaucracy to conscript (enslave) the nation’s young males? War was never inevitable. It was a product of human agency. Join Sheldon Richman for this important session, brought to you by the Future of Freedom Foundation, September 16th at 8pm EDT!
