When there are too many laws, you cannot help breaking some laws, and you cannot trust anyone else because they might tell the police.
If you have to break some laws, you might have to break more laws to conceal the fact that you broke laws.
If you are a criminal, then you cannot trust the police or any government official, so you have to avoid most government services, so the government does less for you, so you have less reason to support the government because the government does less for you.
If the government is not helping you, then you are more likely to resent taxes, and you will try harder to evade taxes.
If the government runs your life, then you are not free.
If the government runs your life, then you have no reason to work hard. Slaves are always lazy.
