and? being a thief is a hard job
i believe school is theft
i believe life is theft
btw saying taxation is theft doesn’t mean that it isn’t needed. It is theft.
All I hear from you is "I don't understand consent"
So u disagree with high taxes to pay for free school and health????
someone just watched new destiny's video
well yea Aussies fkn made "GOLDCOAST" lightposts using $2.1million dollars from tax payments
I believe that breathing is theft. We just showed up one day and started stealing the oxygen smh
Taxation isn't theft
Exploiting labour isn't theft
To anyone thinking taxation if theft - try to show some more respect to your ancestors that fought hard to get the best conditions for your life...
taxes should be opt in (in some places)
guess why the rich try to avoid it cuz they know :D
if u a earn ur first million u pay 500k in taxes i mean like where does this shit go? still 30% of the world population starving or freezin
Both opinions "taxation is theft" and "work is theft" are legit.
Yet, most of people having them don't understand what they imply :
- without taxes no road, no army, no police, no government. So people who want the end of taxes dream to live in Somalia basically.
- without capitalism (because that's it, stealing benefit from the work of other because you own the mean of production) you end with a system that remove money as society driver : no investment for innovation, so either not replaced at all (you want to live like in Vanuatu) either state driven (you want to live in DPRK).
Either way, that are not countries with the best quality of life we have (in fact their qol is so low that none of their citizens can come and chill on hltv.org like we can).
So I guess accepting some of these stealing is the best system men can came up with so far.
Now the debate is how much of them :
Shall taxes be high enough to give to everyone, a security mattress or not?
Shall dividends be low enough so workers get a significant reward for the wealth they created or not?
On these 2 questions you can basically rebuild our current tax and economic political scope left/right.
