If you cooperate with the present US Government to a greater extent than
to protect your own safety (i.e. paying to taxes to stay out of jail is
OK, but buying T-Bills is not), you are morally complicit in the
atrocities committed by that government. One MILLION Americans are
rotting in prison having harmed no person or property; armed agents of
the government routinely confiscate billions of dollars worth of property
without trial or even accusation; thousands of immigrants are collected
and returned to more oppressive governments; if that's not tyrrany, then
what is?
