Having done some statute investigation in Oz (some years ago now, assisting a friend at the time), the foundations are shaky.  Consider:

 - What is "income"?

 - What is a "person"?

 - What is "money"

... and that's not yet even considering the intersection set of constitutionality..

Remember Al Capone - done for 100s or 1000s of "very small" receipts re "tax fraud".

The big one re tax: your consent.  When you fill in your first form, you are consenting to 'the jurisdiction of' the taxation statute laws in your country/ state etc.  When your parents sign the application form for your birth certificate, are you at that point "created" as a "person" in "the eyes of the taxation law"?

When these consents happen with or without your own consent, or knowledge (if you did not know at the time, you were not legally "informed", therefore illegal contract/consent, since was only 'tacit' consent), how do you get out of these contracts?  How do you tell the ATO/IRS that "I shall no longer be filing tax returns", or "my personhood under the taxation laws ceases as at $TODAY"?

How to achieve such "contract withdrawals" so that you can live your life on Ho's and Blo, or at least poke fun at such lives in viral meme vids (and with McAfee, we never can quite tell which it is...), is a question for this age.
