What did tax do for you today? #4 – the police

Posted on

Sometimes stating the obvious is necessary.

We need police.

We need laws enforced.

And just as much we need their presence in communities – where I suspect they do a lot more simple offering help and direction than they do law enforcement.

I am well aware that there are those on the right who think the police – and even law – can be privatised.

That’s wrong. A coherent system of law and order underpins a society. Only government can command and direct such a service. Only government can pay for it.

That’s the Joy of Tax.
