Taxation revenues are the basis of the modern state. Without them, it cannot perform its administrative and redistributive functions.

The revenues are also used to subsidise industries, bailout banks and clean-up the social and environmental damage inflicted by businesses in pursuit of private profits.

The level of taxation depends on the social settlement mandated to the state through the ballot-box. It can be changed by citizens.
