The Income Tax: Root of all Evil
By Frank Chodorov
Frank Chodorov was an extraordinary thinker and writer, and hugely influential in the 1950s. This is his American classic that argues that the income tax, more than any other legislative change in American history, made it possible to violate individual rights that were at the core of the founding.
He argues that income taxes are different from other forms because they deny the right of private property and presume government control over all things.
