    Thanks for explaining! I got the representation of the ‘lawlessness’ vs the ‘nanny state’, but couldn’t make the link with taxation (though I figured that’s what the “Taxing” remark referred to).

    That said, I’m not sure I agree – a place like India with reasonably high taxes would still be considered either “lawless” or “common sense based” depending on your point of view. While Singapore, the mother of all nanny states, has reasonably low levels of taxation (income tax at least).

    Of course there’s no denying that tax dollars pay for our security (both internal and external) and that zero taxation would inevitably result in zero security (apart from some tax havens like Monaco perhaps), but I don’t think they’re correlated beyond a certain point. High taxes can simply be a sign of an inefficient and corrupt bureaucracy.

    I’m lost… how does taxation link up with the “safety zone” and “nanny state”? What is Wiley trying to say? Can someone explain this strip to me please? :-/(bloody hell, my first ever comment and it makes me look like a moron)
