“Taxes are essentially just an annual subscription to the country you live in”

“Taxes are essentially just a yearly subscription to the country you live in. Childhood is the free trial” is a saying that has been printed on many images. This quote was posted on Twitter by Syndrome on November 25, 2019.
     
The first half of the saying had been cited before. “Taxes are like a subscription to your Country that you can’t cancel, no matter how bad the service gets” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on August 19, 2016. “Taxes are essentially a subscription to a country” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on July 14, 2017. “Taxes are subscription fees for the country you live in” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on May 8, 2019.     
   
“Yearly” is sometimes replaced with “annual.” “Taxes are pretty much just an annual subscription to the country you live in. Being a child is the free trial period” was posted on Twitter by “Galahad of Tombstone squad” on November 27, 2019. “Taxes are essentially just an annual subscription to the country you live in. Childhood is the free trail” was posted on Twitter by Theshan Alwis on January 17, 2020.

Taxes are the dues you pay to your country form the protections and advantages it provides for you. It’s your subscription fee, if you will.

Taxes are like a yearly subscription; nothing wrong with changing subscriptions to another country.
