There are many things wrong with Germany. Today we do not focus on high
taxation, but two crazy monopolies: GEZ (you got to pay monthly fees to
watch TV .. ha, ha) and GEMA making sure you pay for any music you here.
Here is a good story about GEMA:

I especially like: "So even though GEMA probably does not have rights
to any of the music, they are not required to prove that they do."
.. and GEZ you pay if you have a computer .. you don’t even have to
watch the state propaganda channels.
