JKB was worried that he’d hijacked an earlier thread by introducing us to Australian Topher Field’s “Forbidden” histories. JKB needn’t have worried. I’ve become an overnight Topher Field’s fan.
I’m including here Topher’s Forbidden History of Terrible Taxes. You should watch his other “Forbidden” video as well, which is about free speech. As far as I can tell, he’s also working on a video about the dangers of bureaucracy, which he funded using crowd sourcing.
