Reminder that birthday boy said taxation is theft almost 100 years ago >The collection of any taxes which are not absolutely required, which do not beyond reasonable doubt contribute to the public welfare, is only a species of legalized larceny. Under this republic the rewards of industry belong to those who earn them. The only constitutional tax is the tax which ministers to public necessity. The property of the country belongs to the people of the country. Their title is absolute. They do not support any privileged class; they do not need to maintain great military forces; they ought not to be burdened with a great array of public employees.
>>14820 I like Spain and Norway's model of having a tax on wealth, personally.
>>14821 You realize that inheritance (wealth) was the basis of the athenian democracy that ended up beign the basis of our modern conception of rights and shit . It didn't being with human dignity. It began with wealth. But here you are willing to forgo that because you think you're going to be poor forever. Now a landtax is bad enough but everyone more or less has to admit that either an elaborate right of way system has to exist (and already largely does) or common roads have to built and maintained. But what is being built and maintained by a wealth tax? Is there a road? No. is it the 'common good' no because that money is not earmarked for anything. The only thing a wealth tax builds is more government. You see the issue here. It will never stop, you no longer have property, you've allowed the government to not only interfer with trade but with the ability to have wealth at all. It's untennable because when the only thing the governments ll use this shit for is to grow themselves (like pigs at a trough). And you know what the fat piggy government is going to say. Oink we need more money, your kids need less, you need less. All because idiots like you would rather be jealous and vindictive then hardworking. But hey, go for it. Keep telling people that if they have 8 apples they can only pass 7 to their kids, 6 , 4 , 3 , 2 apples to their kids. Eventually someone is just gonna beat the fuck out of government (and conversly the rich are going to be much better apple smugglers then you are you dumb shit.).
>>14832 The problem is the inheritance without hard work breeds decadence. Those who work hard have virtue, but by providing a soft life for their children means their children are raised without virtue. Their only virtue is hedonism bankrolled by the sweat of their ancestors.
