Tax pays for all those things you take for granted - Police force, fire stations, NHS, education. If people did not pay for these through tax, private organizations would make millions out of people who rightfully should have those services when they need them, for free (or if you count tax as the payment, a hell of a lot less than if someone was making a profit out of it.)
There are appropriate uses for force. For example, if someone is about to bludgeon your head in with a baseball bat, having someone to stop him from so by use of force is generally considered a good thing.
It's always sad for me to see a proud capitalist. After experiencing with loving and being loved, I came to the understanding that loving people is always better than using them. Yes, Capitalism ALWAYS ends in using people, whether you want it or not. I feel like there are no words to say to you in order to make you feel what I feel; the love for a fellow human being. There's noting I can do for you, and I'm sorry. You will have to live like this for the rest of your life, using and being used by people, not knowing you could live a better life. The only thing I can wish for you is that you'd at least be in the rich side of the society. While both sides live the lie, the rich at least live it longer. Socialist.
Okay, so, putting guns to people's heads and telling them what to do and how to live ISN'T using people? Socialists promote a society of violence; capitalists support peaceful coexistence and trade. From each according to his ability to each according to his need applies far more to capitalism than to socialism. Everyone has needs, and everyone has something unique they can provide others, and through trade all are satisfied as best as physically possible. If you say you don't support a society of violence and force then you are a capitalist like us. If you think people should be allowed to choose who they associate with and how you are a capitalist. If you don't, you're just evil.
Capitalism does no such thing. Capitalism would make slaves of everyone if it lined their pockets, and to think otherwise is naive and ignorant of history.
I can assume you are of the opinion that you're the hardest working human on the planet, and only you have accomplished anything. Ignorant of the billions of others who have helped you to get to where you are at, ignorant of the billions before who's contributions went unpaid by capitalism that make your life easier both at work, and socially.
Life is too short - and I'd rather help accomplish something as a species.
Well I certainly won't stop you. You can support and live in what ever kind of society you want. If you want to donate time, energy and resources to some great socialist commune I won't lift a finger to stop you. All I ask is the same privilege. If I don't like what your masters are doing don't force me to pay for it or to work for them. If all I want to do is coexist peacefully with my fellow man, on my own terms, perfectly voluntarily, please leave me alone.
I only assumed. But splendid then, neither of us will be getting in the way of the other. You won't try to subject me to the arbitrary whim of the majority, and I won't every try to force you to associate with me in any fashion. Couldn't ask for more.
