I'm pretty sure there isn't. "Science" that isn't based on evidence is just pseudoscience. It reminds me of this: what do you call alternative medicine that works? Medicine.

Since when did memes count as acceptable intelligent discourse? Oh right, it's g-e.

I love how paying taxes is equated to being a slave. Talk about a complete lack of decency when actual slaves do still exist. What a complete fuckwit. Good god almighty.

The concept of a civil servant is pretty clear. The state is a service we pay for our protection and emergency situations. However, a lot of money goes away to politicians' personal pockets.

Whilst the idea of 0 taxes is naive, the good idea is to get in that direction, and act in the idea to negotiate this deal with the state, for the safety of your own pocket. So that fewer money goes in their pocket.

That's why fiscal/economic policy must be a serious subject at all elections.

Well there's a complex discussion to be had regarding the idea of base taxes, wealth taxes, consumption taxes, and excise taxes.

Certain forms of taxation are only possible in certain environments, others hurt the poorest disproportionately. As is always the case, politicians love boutique taxes or cuts, because they can make insignificant changes, while appearing to make solid moves in one direction or other to the public, even if it is ideological reinforcement only. The downside to boutique taxes is what Trump referred to as "regulations" in some speeches, because eventually you end up with 790 special cases that you need to hire lawyers and accountants for specifically to deal with.

One of the rallying cries for tax opponents is that "it hurts growth", which in itself is a false truism, the greatest economic growth in America happened in an era with stunningly high corporate taxes. However, this was at a time when banks were also able to offer their own promissory notes as legal tender, the dollar had gold backing for price stability, and global capital wasn't as free to move unhindered between jurisdictions.

Globalization is one of those ideas that sounds good in theory, especially if you focus on purely goods and services, but it's the globalization of finance that's the real problem. Soros has crashed whole countries by manipulating currencies on open markets, the American govt routinely strongarms smaller nations by withholding cash deliveries required for currency exchange and so on.

The only solution to this is nation to nation barter systems, as Germany did in the late 30's, bypassing the graft and manipulation inherent in merely moving money. It would also take away jurisdiction hopping, where corporations find the best country to headquarter in for taxation schemes. The downside is that this requires the state to be the purchaser for the trade, and that invites govt interference, which depending on how moral the society is, could be an invitation to corruption as well.

The fundamental problem of a financialized world is the option for "speculation" by large players, because the ability to speculate or gamble on the value of things is also the vector for the greatest manipulation. Allowing the rich to get obscenely powerful while also getting richer.
