A comment by Doug on If it moves, tax it

You won't often find me defending taxation, but a couple quick points for balance -

1) Governent is more expensive than it was 100 years ago, and not only because it's created more expenses for itself. For example, that gas tax pays for roads that are MUCH more numerous and expensive than 100 years ago.

2) In many cases, the average Mom could probably still stay home today - as long as the family is willing to accept the average standard of living of 100 years ago (no cars, no electric appliances, no insurances, no vaccinations, etc.). I don't think that many people on either side of the Atlantic are.
