I am not sure what you point is? I live and work in Germany but am American. I pay taxes (a huge amount I might add) in Germany. If I make under 80 K per year, I am exempt from being double taxed. But I have to make a tax declaration of my German income to the IRS every year even if in the end, I owe no taxes. If not for this provision, I and anyone who worked outside of the US would have to pay double tax and would end up essentially with no income whatsoever.

Re: we're easily fooled is the point

not taxes so much, but the amazing degree (and how easily) to which we, the public, can be fooled by propaganda when we trust, unquestioningly, those who appear to have "authority".

You mean like those who "unquestioningly" follow the bible (or what people tell them the bible tells them) because of its supposed "authority"? Or those who follow a particlar preacher/leader/politician "unquestioningly" because they appear to have "authority"? I am not sure how your tax example will lead to a discussion of this sort. Maybe you meant something else?
