Yes, exactly. We also wouldn't need to pay for government because people wouldn't need it. We need government when we buy stuff, not when we make or grow stuff. People need government support when they live their lives according to what they buy (and want protected), rather than living according to needs and usefulness to their place.

Ideological fantasies out of the way; in a capitalist system, people need to know the actual costs of things they buy, including government, at their decision point. Otherwise, the one dollar-one vote system always favors the propaganda marketing dollars, not the people.

People make the rich richer because they don't know what it really costs as they are salivating over that sugary drink and cheap cheeseburger (or car, etc).
