I'm not saying the wealthy should or should not be taxed, more or less than now.
I am pointing out why, no matter how many wealth taxes are applied, a certain class, land owners, can never be made to pay tax. Because their biggest asset is virtually untaxed in the end.
This is why taxes always fall on workers and enterprise - The only producers of wealth.
Affirm it or deny it, that is entirely your choice, I will not judge you on that. All I will say is that you cannot complain and maintain credibility when you become a victim, if you remain in denial of it.
Can you now see how social problems have nothing to do with socialism or capitalism. Nor the welfare state or the free market.
Our greatest social problems have everything to do with rent seeking as if owners of non productive property assets needed subsidy and welfare. And as if by creating wealth, taxation of your hard work skill and enterprise is a fine on you for causing harm to society.
There is a remedy so radical that it will not be considered if the timid and low aimers believe less drastic measures might work. Yet it is so simple that its effectiveness will be discounted until more elaborate measures are evaluated by those lacking confidence.
There is a huge lobby on both the left and right of the political machine controlling the world economy. Both are in a deep state of collective psychological denial about how the real economy works. They speak in terms of double think, straw men and question begging. What a pickle they are in, all due to denial of root cause.
Do you want to aim higher than this dead mainstream? Are you one of the bold, a risk taker, a confident person?
