NCM & CDM

What did Gandhi do when he felt that an illegitimate government was imposing unreasonable taxes. He refused to pay taxes and courted incarceration.

While our governments are not illegitimate (we elected them; didn't we?), there are issues we all have with our governments (centre and states). Taxes are unreasonable, but what is more unreasonable is the way in which taxes are spent.

Are NCM & CDM the solutions as being discussed by various people / groups
