Mike, David Hume once said that just because a conscripted sailor does not commit suicide by jumping overboard, it doesn’t mean that he therefore consented to being conscripted.  Similarly, one does not have to be imprisoned for tax evasion and forced to live in a cage for seven or eight years to prove that he never consented to being taxed.
