One of the memes currently being pushed by the progressive mainstream media is the idea that not enough tax is collected from corporations. So we have this enthusiastic witch hunt where companies and individuals are named and shamed as not paying their “fair share”.
The real problem is that govts already take too much tax and by doing so they kill off the productive or tax producing sector and thereby compound their mistake.
The witch hunt and the naming and shaming is just another smokescreen for the failure of socialism. The true solution is that govts have to shrink in size and limit their spending and get off the private wealth producing sector’s back. Then they (govts) will have enough money and they won’t choke off the source of that money.
Simple right? Except that your average socialist is a light year away from understanding such basic economics and will pursue greater govt and more and more tax until the whole house of cards crashes around our ears. As its showing every sign of doing right now as I write.
Another video from Brendan O’Neill is above, and once again, in his most articulate manner, he crushes the arguments of the statists so well one has to ask, what the hell is wrong with the National Party that there is apparently nobody there that can likewise articulate these kind of arguments. Until there is, they’re useless.
Actually, in the broader sense, if the National Party can’t get Cultural Marxism, or Critical Theory, or understand that you can’t get more tax by endlessly raising taxes, then they’re worse than useless.
We need investment, wealth creation and economic growth. We’re not getting it because the National and Labour Parties, both examples of the cronyist all knowing all powerful socialist monoliths that exist right across the west, cling to social, taxation and regulatory policies that kill off all of those things.
