A new way of looking at Taxes!

Recently when Prime Minister Dr. Baburam Bhattarai announced extensive relief packages, people went gaga over his generosity. The question "Relief packages for what? And who pays for it?" was neither asked nor dealt upon. A few people (including some newspapers) who dared to ask the bitter questions were quickly drowned by the ferocious attacks from Dr. Bhattarai supporters. This tendency, however, is not associated with Dr. Bhattarai only. Any politician promising benefits to people are received with praised and gratitude in Nepal. In this context, I think the following video could present a new way of looking at taxes and government benefits. 

So what do you think about the views presented in the video? Feel free to agree or disagree.
