INTERNS BUILT DA PYRAMIDS!
Hey, better or worse than taxation of your (otherwise) savings? The Government just steals your personal profit from the profit of your labour. Is the tax percentage higher or lower than your savings one?*
Either way, you’re a slave!
That’s three ways, for those counting:
For 1 and 3
We wuz repossessed?
“The collection of taxes was often performed by coercion.”
Some things never change.
…whatever happened to consent, consent of the governed?
“Attempts were made to tax other parts of the population, and as one could hardly supervise everybody’s economic activities, Late Period Egyptians had to declare their income.”
Essentially, he states that a transition from mercenary to outright slave is unlikely because there would undoubtedly be opposition, hastening the Exodus outcome.
Write a musical about it and people might give a shit.
It doesn’t matter if you get 5% on your “savings”, if before that you lost 30% of your “earnings”.
I’m picturing crabs in a bucket.
Like a crazy ex, you’re not allowed to leave. Maybe they should fix the culture at home if they dislike it so much.
I’m certain the luxe apartment bubble should be a secondary Skyscraper Index, based on height alone. Elevators rely on the electricity grid. In a grid-down, they’d be stranded.
Cheaper housing, how awful of those pesky Leave voters.
You really shouldn’t vote in politicians who haven’t got another generation to live.
They’ll promise everyone gibs and laugh their way into the grave.
As you pay for everything they racked up too.
I don’t see how pandering to the middle-class is going to help national debt.
You’re never going to get these voters.
You’d never see a survey like this on the much larger group of lower-class, despite white papers on tragic outcomes in the WWC demographic. Fireworks while Rome burns. I don’t know anyone who’ll care about pronouns if they can’t retire and have to work in a Tesco because their parents owed debts in their inheritance.
10/10 would share again. Shop around.
Molyneux is the only redpill that hasn’t shamed himself with degeneracy.
Breath of fresh air.
The question you’re not allowed to ask:
Who are the farmers?
There is a social contract of slavery. As soon as you are born, there is a price on your head. What you’re told you owe society. It’s called national debt and ‘we’ can’t even pay the interest. It’s a con. You never agreed to it. This is why people are giving up. There is no fairness or incentive. The system is rigged via the devalued currency.
It’s the scientific model of management, Fordism. They’ll be nice to you, because it keeps you docile. They’ll tell you they care, because it means you’ll behave. They’ll promise you the world, if you work. Which is real? Only the work is real. Communists and capitalists come from largely the same stance, with inverted conclusions. The capitalist wants to be his own boss in this system. The Communist wants to be his own boss, self-employed, direct his own labour, in another system. Each believes they can maximize utility in their chosen system. Overall, there is hardly any difference in what they want – to keep what they earn. But from which State? Marxists think the State cares for them, but Marx wanted to destroy the middle-class, not the owners they are uniquely empowered to oppose, and he never went into politics. Politicians are rich. They pay themselves above minimum wage and then flout that law to hire illegals. At least the capitalists are somewhat honest about those Homo Economicus motivations. The key difference is theft. Capitalists say enough has happened, wise to how shitty this system is but hopeful about improvement, at least for individuals who…work hard, Communists want more theft, to put the shoe on the other foot and get The Man tomorrow. Who will enforce this? The angry mob? No, they aren’t intelligent. The Man will never force measures against The Man. I alluded this in “Best Post“.
The only thing they care about is what they can take. They can’t take something you haven’t produced. This is a generational strike. Millennials (and younger) won’t get these goodies. There is no bribe, it’s fucking Monopoly money, fairground tickets for broken rides. But we’re still held responsible for governments and debts we weren’t alive to vote for. That’s illegal, it cannot be forced in either case. The system was damned long before we were born. We are not responsible. We cannot save it, nobody can ‘save’ it and they shouldn’t want to. Those people with the power to do anything are dead (they did manage to take it with them, in experiences and hedonism) or at the top of the chain, they don’t see it as a ‘problem’ to fix, a feature, not a bug. Intergenerational betrayal, and the young will live to see it.
Hey, I have been trying to warn people. I’m not alone in this. Why the maybe passive approach?
They control you with lies. It isn’t for public sector pensions, unfunded liabilities – it’s for the children! It isn’t for the whore down the road who you wouldn’t buy a drink, let alone the lifestyle of contraception, it’s for Family Planning! It isn’t for the ingrates in other countries who try to kill us, it’s for the foreign poor! Lions do not own lions because there would be a fight, eventually. We call this empire collapse. However, humans can own humans if they lie about why.
What are you working for? Which system is it, you support? Are you free to say ‘no’, openly, to your owners?
First lie: Who rules over you? Do you know? Do you know their names? Are you allowed to know?
Second lie: Who writes the textbooks? Are you taught the controversies, all moral sides or the Official Party Line? Who decides what is true for the poor, who attend state schooling?
Third lie: What is your currency? What is your value? Does money give you that? Does office paper? Gold? Food? Where is your value? External or internal? Who lies about this? Who says, in effect, ‘you need us, so you’d better behave’ or ‘toe the line, or you’ll be sorry’? Is that not a threat?
Fourth lie: Do the government do things on your behalf, in your name, without asking? Is that a democracy? Do they do the opposite from what they promised? Isn’t this… fraud? Do you even know what they’re doing? Why not tell you?
Fifth lie: Do they divide you from your kin? Isn’t this a distraction? Didn’t this start with preschool, when they told your family to abandon you (causing known psychiatric damage) to the state schooling system? Do you ‘defend’ groups you do not belong to? So… who defends you? Are you allowed to defend yourself?
It is Reverse Psychology and a fair amount of gaslighting (the true purpose of propaganda, doubt your own mind and they run it, in effect). The State tells you that you are worthless, from birth. Without you, they have nothing. They produce nothing. The state is innately parasitic.
Are you allowed or encouraged to succeed, or shamed and guilt-tripped? Isn’t this abuse? In a relationship, wouldn’t this be domestic abuse? Coming the state, isn’t that propaganda? Are you allowed ambition or achievement? Or, whatever you manage to scrape together from these seeds, do you get told ‘you didn’t build that’? Did someone else file those papers, grow those crops and study for those grades?
If they couldn’t profit from their ‘policies’, they wouldn’t push them. Who is held responsible for their failure? Those who created them and promised results (fraud) in academia? The politicians who wrote them into law? Or is the general public called the failure, since nobody is allowed to question anything else? Look to the second question.
Who has the power? The rich? Are they the same thing? What about the bribed? The workers keeping the system going? Who could improve the system? Who runs it? This relates to the first question.
Who claims to be one of you, but drags you down? Who are the crabs in the bucket making you hopeless? Calling you worthless, like the system itself?
What do they promise? What’s the alternative? ‘Bad things might happen‘ – how does that rationale differ from the Boogeyman? This is used on adults, mind.
The ‘arts’ is a good example of unofficial welfare. If you don’t want to see a play, why should you pay actors and co. for a play you’re never going to see? Why should middle-class hobbies be subsidized? Why not football matches? Why not bread and circuses? Who gets priority? Why? Which information do the arts convey to the public, how can they control the proles that the other hobbies and leisure pursuits do not?
How did this happen? Democracy is a good idea but has certain prior conditions that must be met e.g. population homogeneity, industry, longevity. When people step over the line and survive, there is no line. Find the crime without a punishment. People should have freedom, the State (a press-gang of a minority of bullies over the majority People) should never, they must be servants limited by necessity and mutual agreement. That is capitalism as an idea, some libertarianism without the globalism.
Instead, think of the ultimate minority group: the elite. Have some sympathy with the champagne socialists. Someone’s gotta crush the grapes, might as well be yours.
Denial is psychologically easier than dealing with it, they’re primed (the real subliminal effect, look it up) to be immature – less grit, lower impulse control, shorter attention spans than previous generations. We were bred to be weak by the State. Like Carlin said, just smart enough to run the machines but never to question why. We didn’t cause this mess, but this is how we live now. We must deal with it.
In a crisis, there is a normalcy bias. People will walk around as though nothing is wrong. On a societal scale, this is ongoing. There are problems, but not the problems the State feeds and funds. I repeat myself. The State is the enemy of the People, whether it be a Communist or capitalist one. If every man is equal, there can be no judges, no politicians, no lawyers, no preachers, no teachers, every man must stand alone. If every man is equal and not an animal, why need a State?
You could simplify that K-types are producers, the little red hen baking the bread and r-types the swarming locust of consumers.
I wonder what lesson that holds for Ks, when the Malthusian trap, the demographic crunch (or economic correction of all the bubbles popping at once to make ’08 look like a child’s Frozen birthday party) snaps on us. It may not happen overnight, but in politics a week is a year. A few years this would take for the shit to trickle down, a few months tops.
The r-selected need a State because it steals the wealth they cannot, as it steals the wealth they cannot produce themselves. The K-selected, dwindling in number with a small, short boost recently, do not need a State. They use the State to connect with each other. That already existed in ancient times, the tribal business.
What is control, in these contexts? Who is controlling you?
Economics works by quintiles, and taxes from this (aka Who is rich?). If you wanna go the typical way, sure, ask WHO is the 1% and what do they have in common? But realistically, they maintain power as the 20%.
The people screeching about the 1% are doing damage control as false opposition. To have a platform in the first place, to have the MSM’s ear, they are the privileged 20%.
I posted this at the beginning of the year.
Good luck. We’re all going to need it. If you’ve read this far, I sincerely wish you well.
Has United States always been sarcastic?
It’s rather predictable actually, that the self-proclaimed rebel’s phone is tapped.
I’m sure it’s innocent surveillance.
“Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.”
Imagine all the hipsters.
With all the discussions about how much they hate various authorities.
You have no idea how much fun I shall have with this information.
The triggering potential is immense. Paranoia develops the amygdala.
And they said Trump wasn’t spied on.
Who puts anything important on their phones, though? Illegal things, they carry with them 24/7.
Spy agency Easter eggs. And they’re going to pay to give up their fingerprint pretty soon!
Hey, they wanted to exchange liberty for security, if you have nothing to fear…
Would liberals have more to hide on their phones? SJWs?
I’m sure having someone’s porn habits and bank details won’t be useful to any Trump government.
I’m beginning to think all that revenge porn may be higher than expected.
See, when you make the governance so powerful, whoever gets in in future has access to it as well.
This machinery will eventually used by conservatives. Christian or Muslim?
One will build a roof, the other will throw your pan-binary Sonic-queer ass off it.
What if someone spoofs your IP?
What if you use a VPN?
(No, Tor does not work).
Why is all data collected for flagging than certain sites?
Where is the list of flag sites?
Would simply visiting a site count as illegal? There are certainly enough computer laws.
What’s the bet the tamest alt right sites are on it?
What about networks?
Cloud photo storage (clue: your sexts and revenge porn)?
This is all pinging to me as Off.
There’s a lot here they aren’t telling. Could it be due to the stupidly high terror alert level post-Calais?
But of course nobody cares about little old me so whatever.
It’s true, they rip off purpose and pretend to hand it to you in the form of servitude.
Why should you listen to teachers who barely qualify as anything else?
“As for families, I do know one thing; the State is the cause of most of their problems. Interference by public schools, interference in the economy, destruction of neighborhoods and communities…all of these things are created and exacerbated by the State. Interference by the State takes away the meaning and purpose of people’s lives, and tries to replace it with its meaning, which are generally bureaucracy, militarization, war and empire.
“Get ’em while they’re young” and teach them to love the slave-driver.
Government would never lie to us, Government workers love us – because they raised us…
Would any of them still be there if they weren’t getting paid?
These people complain about staff training days, let alone working over summer and other holidays like everyone else. They don’t care about the kids, they are the kids. School babysits the teachers, the literal children give them a pretense of something to do.
It’s very logical. Where to send the stupid people of no use to the economy? Back to school.
The kids won’t notice, kids are stupid and malleable according to Tabula Rasa theories.
On the other hand…
It’s intended to replace the family and foster a psychological dependence. In adulthood, you’re more likely to follow social norms because you’ve been trained into obedience – like a dog. They call that a school for a reason. You aren’t supposed to think, question, only repeat and obey.
We thinking folk have the thankless task of deprogramming their minions.
Think about it – most people will have warmer attachments to a randomly assigned public sector worker than a close genetic relative.
Paraphrasing my point from the other day, but here’s a better explanation of the concept.
You can ignore us, but you can’t ignore the consequences.
Politics is the art of administering poison for a poison victim.
Nothing to worry about then? My god, you couldn’t redpill Gen Y or Gen Z harder if you wanted, than what’s coming down the line. Boomers will avoid it, possibly the elder segment of Gen X.
The rest of us are doomed, my dear boy.
Meanwhile, the voices of reason (people who can use a calculator) are calling for tax cuts to stave off disaster. Literally. Chaos.
It would be equal, everyone would be treated exactly the same. It would be fair. No exceptions for rich people.
“It is time for Britain to make a vital choice. Our economy is stagnant, crippled by excessive public spending, a mismanaged and inefficient public sector, an extraordinarily complex and punitive tax system and a public mood that has become increasingly anti-capitalist.
There are two options. We can either decide to tweak the status quo – try and keep a lid on public spending, reform bits of the public sector and hope for the best. Or we can drastically change course: adopt an entirely new tax system fit for the 21st Century and establish the UK as a global trading hub, generating renewed prosperity for all those who live and work here.
We at the 2020 Tax Commission are firmly in this second camp: the old order is broken and needs radical reform. But we are also realists: our proposals, while far-reaching, are practical. They are within the realms of what a competent, ambitious and principled government could deliver over the next decade.”
In reality, a single income tax would collapse the welfare state (a single minor drop in amount has caused issues) and cause riots and terrorism. Why, you ask? The most recent census has proven that Muslims are disproportionately taking benefit checks and the money has only been flowing because the young stupid SJWs don’t realize they are the ‘rich’ being taxed, their future earnings, to be precise. We’ve already indebted ourselves to the future, there is nowhere else to go.
Double taxation is supposed to crush the People. Like the new tuition fee repayment model, which is actually a Graduate Tax (the people who wrote this into law got a Uni education for free).
The time to change the tax system isn’t when the economy has already collapsed. The production and potential would be long gone. It will be too late by the time the average voter pulls their head from their arse during another depression (we’ve already had recession) and sees how vital financial retention is to growth. Future growth, remember that?
Do the entitled mass of rabbits expect other-funded retirement? To own their own homes? To inherit?
When these people suffer from the policies they vote in, we need feel no guilt. We tried to warn them and they made
