The burden of taxation on the back of a people is not unlike the burden of a weight on the back of a horse. Just as a small burden badly placed may distress a horse that could carry with ease a much larger burden properly adjusted, so a people may be impoverished and their power of producing wealth destroyed by taxation that, if levied another way, could be borne with ease.

The author's point is made by

(A) pointing out an ambiguity
(B) using an analogy
(C) refuting a supposed counterexample
(D) appealing to an authority
(E) generalizing from a particular case
