"There is no reason to create wealth in the developed world anymore as it will be confiscated for REDISTRIBUTION to special interest supporters. Do you think that might affect the behavior of producers and entrepreneurs? For supporters of socialist/progressive BIG government it is NEVER enough to fund their VOTE BUYING and corruption...
Its only small and medium size businesses that are paying TAXES as they are unable to INFLUENCE public servants for tax loopholes and regulatory FAVORS as BIG BUSINESS does with their lobbying.
In the United States the CIVIL war was fought to end slavery. To President Lincoln, the very idea of one person taking the fruits of another person's labor IE: "SLAVERY" was VILE, immoral and repugnant and he went to war to end the practice. It still is in my mind.
Now the SOCIAL WELFARE governments throughout the developed world have implemented the same practice and call it FAIRNESS. Can you say George Orwell's Animal Farm? There is no reason to produce wealth in these societies as to do so RESULTS in confiscation by the something for nothing societies which are cannibals of the worst sort."
Wake up, slaves! Throw off your chains!!
