: How does the money get into the household of an employed person?? Via the business. They pay for it, they (the organisation of employee and capital) are the source of the wealth.

This sounds like the "chicken or the egg" fable. Regardless, taxes skim from both groups, businesses and households, since both entities profit from the existence of a civil government. The difference is that businesses pay less and profit more than households.

: The corrupted, and the fact they have the force to enforce what follows their self interested corruptions is what makes the corruption possible.

So in order to end the problem we eliminate political power? Sorry, the best way to end corruption is to stop the corruptors by resulting in a more equitable distribution of wealth and democratic control of the means of production.

: Where does that come from, theyre never that big in any stats I see (unless we have different definitions of big)

: No. the latter is based upon what the company will *create*, the former is based upon what the government will *expropriate* from those who did create.

What, the government does not supply goods and services? Don't be foolish, the government can provide goods and services as well or better (depending upon the thing in question) than private firms. You have to lose your preconceptions about government; it is mere ideology that makes ypu concieve of all governmnet as wasteful, inefficeint, and parasitical. It also displays a rather malignant view of man.
