we have reaches the peak as a society
Finland lungi_cs 
from today to 2050 the population of the world wilm rise by 28% (to 9.6 bil) percent but the number of 80y olds is gonna rise by ~500% and in 2100 world population will fall to 8.8 billion our population is going to be old as hell and decreasing theres no one left to pay the taxes. society will collapse and we're all going to die, have fun while it lasts.

i doubt it. there will probably be some cell regeneration nanobot stuff within the next 40-50 years that makes u live 100-200 years longer without pain and suffering.

And if they make cell regeneration nanobot stuff then they will also be able to find a solution to low taxes problem. Or else, just dont get that stuff and commit suicide. Easy. If you don't want to grow and deal with the future, then just die.

I’m pretty sure that by 2100 society will have for long realized that taxation is outright theft

you dont have to be a part of society, gtfo if you dont want to be a part of it. live and shit i the woods and enjoy life
2020-07-15 11:58
No. I’d rather just make “dirty” money while you dumbasses pay up your 50% taxes so that your government can let another gypsy live for free
2020-07-15 12:01
that tax is funding vital infrastructure which makes your daily life possible. not to mention it funds the police & judicial services which keep the peace and if some money goes to welfare, that money might prevent that "gypsy" from stabbing you on the street, because he wants YOUR money.

You killed him bro. Only person here that realizes that taxes go straight into governmental services like infrastructure, education and healthcare. There's a straight correlation between quality of life and amount of tax payed.
2020-07-15 12:37
it's anarcho-capitalism saying no to taxes. they rarely have any good insights into how economics actually work. just thinking that if there weren't no taxes and we'd have all this extra capital freed to do everything we want, because apparently government can't handle it properly.. is just absurd. if it's just companies and no other man in between.. the companies will figure out the most efficient ways of fucking each other up in any deals that maintain infrastructure and the common man will suffer the most.
2020-07-15 12:47
I have much better insights on how economics work, at least in my country. Here we pay completely unreasonable amounts of money only to later get fucked up by government funded police or to have a bridge break under our cars because it hasn't been fixed since the 60-s. Taxes are what allows corruption. If there was no such thing as a few people taking money from every person in the country under the guidelines of “doing good“, everyone in my country would be at least 2 times richer. And if it wasn't the incompetent government doing shit like building roads, but rather experts on the topic, we wouldnt have some of the worst roads in europe. But instead, we pay up and watch politicians get millions of dollars out of nowhere Also, “if it's just companies and no other man in between.. the companies will figure out the most efficient ways of fucking each other up in any deals that maintain infrastructure and the common man will suffer the most.” is something you pulled out of your ass completely. I never said anything about anarcho-capitalism and I never said there should be no “middle man”

Maybe it doesn't in fucking LAOS, but there still is a straight correlation between welfare and quality of life and the amount of taxes paid. The higher the taxes, the higher the welfare. So you can talk shit whatever you want, and claim you know it, but it's still hella wrong when the numbers show different shit. And no, seems like you dont have better insights into economics when you want taxes to be gone. Who'll fix roads? Who'll teach? Who'll give hospitals better equipment? Retard alert.
2020-07-15 13:22
I am not from Laos. #43 Also, you should notice how that “correlation” completely falls apart when you take into account the income from natural resources of the countries you look at

What the hell that makes no sense. The higher the taxes, the higher the welfare and the higher the quality of life and the higher happiness. Compare the Netherlands, Germany and Scandinavia with the Czech Republic, Poland and Greece. Still in favor of no/less taxes?
2020-07-15 16:04
your reasoning is fallacious. you're arguing that politicians are corrupt and they take tax money, so you shouldn't pay tax money at all. this is like saying this basket of apples only has rotten apples, therefore all baskets only have rotten apples. also you're still advocating for anarcho-capitalism.
2020-07-15 13:44
All politicians steal. Also you should look up what anarcho-capitalism proposes as you have absolutely no clue
2020-07-15 13:58
i have no clue? coming from the person who doesn't know what a fallacious argument is.

2020-07-15 13:02
oh, so you have evidence of a conspiracy then.
2020-07-15 13:37
It’s common knowledge in my country that 99% of politicians steal as they dont even try to hide it. They just buy huge houses and stuff like that and then in official documents list them with a price like 100x lower. Honestly even that is better than someplace like Portugal, where you also pay huge taxes only to see a bunch of gypsies who never worked a day in their lives driving a new BMW. Wherever you are from, you’re just naive if you think all of your taxes are spent on “essential infrastructure”

how do they steal the money exactly?
2020-07-15 19:16
explain to me, how do you imagine world without taxes?
2020-07-15 12:38
Same as right now but everything is privately owned and we dont have to throw our money into politicians pockets under the threat of going to jail Use road = pay a small amount of money for it Go to school = pay Want there to be a new sidewalk on your street = pay But no one forces you to pay unreal amounts of cash just because
2020-07-15 13:06
“privately owned” is not exactly what I meant. “Temporarily given to companies” would be the right thing to say
2020-07-15 13:17
im too for privatization of most things, but there are things that have to "govern over", like small administration; your initial premise implies that all taxes are bad in which case there would be no country and thus my question, how would you imagine such system, or rather lack of it

2020-07-15 11:53
ur gotta be dumb as fuk to believe that in 2050 we will still have the same system as now. taxes will just not exist anymore. not even 5-10 more years and we will have like a digital currency. not more than 30 years for robots to do all the normie jobs so humans can focus on better things like rebuilding the planet and agriculture of the world.

how the fuck will governments function without taxes
2020-07-15 11:56
there will be no government, thats my guess. we will this planet so hard in the next years that we will finally come to realize that we gotta change something. mayb its even to late and we all go extinct but there is tiny glimpse of hope.
2020-07-15 11:57
there will be a world government and you wont have any rights just like china

u kinda see with corona, humans will do anything for their freedom. and if this so called world government comes, there will be huge uprisings after that.

We get increasingly smarter and need less and less manual labor to feed ourselves and keep society running. Don't be so gloomy. Automatization will do a lot of work for us and people will get increasingly more spare time as the need for manual labor decreases.
2020-07-15 11:57
Finland lungi_cs
but when need for manual labour becones absolete then what will peoole do for work
2020-07-15 12:01
We don't work for works sake. We work to survive. As work gets obsolete we'll just have more spare time. From working 60 hours a week in 1890 to working 37 hours a week in 2020 we'll just keep decreasing it until work is something you want to rather than need to.

2020-07-15 12:05
That's the marxist theory anyway. People don't wanna stop working. They need some sort of meaningful activity in life so people will always work. But we can reduce the workload and make sure people aren't crippled by manual labor when they're 50. So people will work until they're 70, 75 etc in the future because all that manual hard labor will be done by machines.

2020-07-15 13:10
Well most of europe live in a social democratic welfare state heavily inspired by marxist ideology. So I dunno what your problem with Marx is other than people not dying on the streets or people going bankrupt from medical bills to be honest. Not that I don't find both of those just and fair in a capitalist system. I mean, it's important to have losers if you're gonna act like a winner right?

We've been decreasing in intelligence since the 60's however, there are ones that realise what decreases the IQ and with that knowledge there are very smart people but that few and far between.
2020-07-15 12:53
You sure about that??? Here's an article that supports your viewpoint:
2020-07-15 12:59
Certain, and great example. Thanks.
2020-07-15 12:58
The article linked above is where I should've emphasized this: "Westerns have lost 14 IQ points on average since the Victorian age, according to a study published by the University of Amsterdam last year. Jan te Nijenhuis thinks this could be because intelligent women tend to have less children than women who are not as clever, The Huffington Post reported. The perceived link between IQ and fertility is a very contentious one. Dr Nijenhuis studied the results of 14 intelligence studies conducted between 1884 and 2004 to come to his conclusion. Each study measured peoples' reaction times - how long they took to press a button after being prompted. It is claimed that reaction time mirrors mental processing speed - so it reflects intelligence. They found that visual reaction times averaged 194 milliseconds in the late 19th Century, but in 2004, they had increased to 275 milliseconds. This would suggest that people have become less intelligent, they said." That's not really how we measure IQ though. Although reaction time is a measurement there are verbal, spatial and mathmatical skills emphasised in the standard test (Stanford-Binley test). I don't know much about IQ but I took that test twice with years in between with a psychologist. I got 98 and 101 in the tests and with a +/- 5 margin it means my IQ is somewhere between 96 and 103. Which is in the "normal" IQ spectrum.

2020-07-15 12:09
golden age my frend full of light,joy,happiness and love, no wars no conflicts. mayb golden age means us dying and living in paradise which is the endless nothingness, which could also be all this. never know.

2020-07-15 12:18
not really, no i just have an indian friend i play dota2 with and he is quite into it and hes pretty certain that this golden age will happen again in the next decades.
2020-07-15 12:26
please.. there is no such thing as paradise or hell
2020-07-15 12:20
if u think about there is paradise. in the endless void of nothing of the universe u feel no pain, no suffering, u are united with everyone u loved before. but u simple dont notice it, cuz u dont exist anymore.
2020-07-15 12:25
you say that because you think u just become nothing when you die what if u respawn in the future or in another universe or dimension

Humans do not live forever, we wither and die due to our bodies and cells ageing. As a result of this, we try to have the best life possible as we do not know when we are going to die, we just will one day.
