Its not "slavery", its literally you paying for services. Simply paying for a whole lots of services in one package.
And you're getting it at a massive discount because 1- its pretty much mass production for these services by the state. 2- everyone pays as well. 3- Better off individuals are paying bigger share on your behalf so more discount. (For the third point, atleast in places where functional brains exist.)
If people don't want to pay taxes or contribute to society, don't fucking demand the government to do or provide anything to you. And states generally do a whole lot of things, even though most go un-noticed.
If you don't want to pay taxes to your government or atleast contribute in any meaningful way, move somewhere else and don't be a leach on the rest of society.
Seriously, the people who keep complaining about taxes and calling it "slavery" are in my opinion some of the most retarded people in the world.
Taxes is literally one of the main pillars of civilized societies that makes sure everyone plays role in maintaining it and insures its continuity and survival.
You don't like it ?! go fucking live in the jungle or something.

As i said, if you think living under the umbrella of the law, or paying taxes, or anything of this sort in general makes you a slave or even partially a slave; Then you should go try living in a jungle because this is the only way a civilized society can exist.
Individual and specific laws can indeed restrict your liberties, and those should be removed. But the concept of laws in general does not make you a slave. It just makes you a member of a society.
