tax on taxes

by on March 31, 2014

We’re supposed to hate tax, right?

Question: what’s so bad about getting together to buy something?
You do it with your family – why not with your country?
The problem isn’t tax, but misuse!

Here are some links for a novel idea. No filter – I’m too busy to watch them myself. About to go offline for 6 months. Not completely. But you’ll be hearing a little less from me in the time to come.* Remember this blog remains open to further authors who can identify themselves with Banks need Boundaries!

The idea to scrub all fees and taxes except for a tax on ground makes a lot of sense to me, and I can imagine to everyone else except for those who own the ground. In any case, it’s an idea to consider. Might help see through the current system, which taxes almost everything, some things even double and triple. Or maybe we just need a tax on taxes 😉

The man who sent me these links is very interesting. Bruno Moser, limo driver at World Economic Forum, and thus a lot more qualified to represent me than the blokes who can afford the 30,000-dollar ticket there. Yesterday, he was arrested for the crime of sitting down between leaflets while running for election.

If you thought you have it tough in India, spare a thought for the oppressed people of Switzerland.


According to Berne police, the main reason was refusing to present his ID. Remember this is someone who was well-known because he was running for election. His story reminds me a little of Ralph Nader in the 2000 US-election where he was first kicked out of the debate, then refused access to the building for the crime of having a ticket, and then threatened arrest.**

I know these problems pale in comparison to what people are suffering elsewhere, but where do ya draw the line?

* Blogging needs boundaries, too 😀
