“Render Unto Caesar, what is Caesar’s”
Yes indeed. It is difficult to escape taxes. Especially for a man who produces. The government will always want some. This was true before, true today, and into the future.
In times past, it was also understood that men who had provider capability would probably have children. He would take care of these children, for they were his children; what man would not want to give his children the best chance in the world that he could? That was the encouraged sentiment; one that made sense at the time.
What about today? As we saw in the last post, Iceland has pretty much done away with fathers. The State provides lots of goodies for women and children. There is apparently little need for men to provide for their children. The empowered independent government-dependent women have the matter well at hand.
Where does that leave men with respect to obligations to State and society? The only thing left is to “Render Unto Caesar”, do what you enjoy, and be prepared for the day of “Render Unto Seizer”.
