If you live in a country that has a federal reserve bank, then the World Bank, a privately run company that is able to legally create money from thin air, is who supplies your country with money, at interest. And you as the individual is required to pay a tax on your labor to pay off the interest on the governments’ loan from this private bank.
Many people are duped into believing that their taxes pay for infrastructure, and without taxes their would be no roads or schools and the country would fall apart, but this is completely untrue. The government has the legal right to coin its own money and control its value, but it does not. It borrows money from a private bank and uses this bank loan to pay for infrastructure and then you are taxed in order to pay off the interest on the loan. Interest, which from a business perspective, is pure profit for the international banksters.
