Old people get offended over the most basic stuff. Women having opinions and not being treated like property. Non white and non straight people existing. Religions besides theirs. Pretty much everything.
"Paying taxes to a corrupt government is slavery." And so is paying taxes to any government, actually! There is no such thing as a non-corrupt taxing government, since by definition "taxes" (as opposed to voluntary contributions) imply force will be used against innocent people who are reluctant to pay.
