Is it moral for our governments to impose poverty on us?
Taxation determines what poverty levels will exist within it’s demographic form. It controls the graph shown below. Governments control taxation and thus control poverty levels directly.
Imagine if you will, the real truth of that taxation, if used correctly, to move the wealth shown in this graph wherever it wants to, with minimal effect on the whole. The fact is, experts say that such a reality would be a win win for everyone.
Not how little of a change would be needed to reach the ideal.
Wise and moral people throughout history, as well as most religious movements, put poverty as the number one enemy to man’s first priority, which is security.
For perhaps the first time in history, we have the wealth where we could end poverty quite easily, --- just with our collective loose change.
It would seem to me that governments are not acting ethically and should be chastised.
I guess that George Carlin, a wise person, was correct in what he said of what Americans cannot feel in their anal orifices. I apply the same condition to the vast majority of the world.
If true that we are being willfully ignorant, and do not even care about each other to insure we live in a moral environment, then our owners have succeeded in cowering man’s moral nature to a state of subservience. We have given up our freedom. If we ever had any.
We have all accepted to be slaves. Shame on us all.
We do not live in a Democracy. We live in a Hypocrisy.
We can easily rid ourselves of poverty.
Morality says yes.
Will we do the right thing?
Not till hell freezes over.
What worries me about the money divide is that there will be another French, or Russian revolution.
That kind of happened in Syria and the 'Arib Spring.'
People who don't think chimate change is anthropomorphic must not study much.
The Yo Yo in office as President of the U.S. may be leading the laggers.
K sera buddy.
If the U.N. timing is right, there is a good chance that we have driven our grandchildren extinct.
We are way over the line.
I would end the regressive sales and value added taxes, set a minimum income line above the poverty line and would set an income tax rate that is the same regardless of income.
A fair tax system does not mean nailing the rich. The bastards owe us, but we should show that we are more moral than they are.
