I did.  They agreed.  :)

Of course, the secret is by citing all kinds of investments and
expenditures I've done, which the government agreed are good and
worthy of tax deductions, including business expenses (related to
development of certain >H techs in my case, although running
experiments in better ways to govern - which the current government
could be encouraged to adapt and use, at least once the experiments
prove that a given method works better than what's currently being used
- might also count).

Play the system.  Game the system.  Know what they truly mean, and
align them to your philosophy.  If it's truly a good one (not just
"down with the government", but "replace this bit of the government
with that system, and here's exactly how it will serve the citizens
better and here's evidence that I'm not just making this up", for
example), there's a good chance they'll allow money spent defending
and developing it to count in place of money that would go to them to
defend and develop the current alternatives.
