It's actually not hard at all for me but its apparently much less rich than it is for you. I've been a voracious reader since I was a small child but I had no idea y'all were seeing pictures of what you were reading. So for me it was like seeing the world with natural limitations - kind of like how most of cannot see in ultraviolet or infrared so we see a limited palate of colors. It would be far richer to see all the missing info but it's not obvious to most people that it is missing

I think you misunderstand the point of taxation. The Cajun navy is a bad example because the people who needed it didn't pay and neither did the people who provided it - they had the capability and acted. There are many things that many of us will one day need but not necessarily today (elder income). There are other things that very few of us need but which none of us can bear (autism support). And there are some things that all of us need reliably all of the time (bridges, police, etc) but which we value differently. Rather than have endless squabbles about each item, we provide a tax pool and hire representatives to sort out the competing priorities.

Why didn't you recall the 1996 to 2004 Pathfinders with the deadly rear sway problem even though you had thousands of reports? Damn near killed my daughter.

I have this and at one point thought about be coming a professional cartoonist. While I can draw some very cool characters, I could not picture them in advance so each drawing was like an act of discovery. I can't imagine what this would be like if I tried to sculot!
