There is a tax and we all pay it. This tax does not build bridges. It doesn’t pave roads or pay for defense, but it is very real. In the United States, only the total combined federal tax revenue ($3.2 trillion) rivals it for scale. But it doesn’t stop at our borders. This tax is collected around the world, and every year a great deal of money and productivity is lost as a result, impeding growth and stagnating economies. And while everyone pays this tax, its most direct burden is placed on those least able to pay it, defying any concept of fairness or economic incentive. It is the tax on being different.
