Seriously how unfree is it to have to pay taxes?
The second clause is not “an estate tax” as the image is intending, ie. the implementation of one. This sort of thing already existed at that time in one form or another (the text of the charter refers to “ancient relief”). The second clause of Magna Carta is intended to impose a restriction on such taxes as they were considered unjust.
