No, I'm okay with the mafia collecting money from people who choose to accept its rule and benefit from its services. No, but if a kid tells me that they're coming to pull/spray my weeds, and I let it happen because I enjoy the benefit, then I should. I tacitly accepted his offer. Oh, good question. I haven't thought about it in depth, but probably as much money as the government spent on those workers. With things like roads, it's easier - you just can't use them.
