Following up on this question, where it turns out police dont have any real power citizens dont have, isn't local government just a utilities monopoly?
Property taxes are enforced with utility shutoffs, so it isnt even a true tax. It's just a utilities charge. Furthermore, there are powers the federal government has, that no locals have. For example, the federal government can perform AWG which is necessary for government to exist.
Since local government does not have AWG- and must do everything through courts like any private entity does- is local government actually a private entity?
And even if it can make tax levies without utility shutoffs, isnt the government still a giant HOA?
