Default Value-Added Tax

Report From a Tax Slave in the UK

Posted by Lew Rockwell on April 1, 2012

Writes Travis Holte:

VAT is 20% in the UK. Master takes 20–50% of what the slave earns and then another 20% what he spends! Master doesn't want the slave to travel and have leisure either (e.g., on gas he takes £2.63 per gallon plus 20% VAT, on alcohol he takes £6.70 per fifth of spirit plus 20% VAT, on cigarettes he requires £32 per carton plus 20% VAT...). And then he makes the slave pay rent on his property and takes a goodly portion of the slave's profits should he sell said property. The Master also takes his cut of the profit on investments and interest accrued on savings. The Master takes nearly half of the inheritance (the slave shall bequeath as little as possible, else his children may get uppity), and we mustn't forget the Master's most ingenious rent scheme of all: inflation! I don't know what this all adds up to be but I think it safe to say today's slaves have nothing on the serfs of old.

Oh but the kind Master takes care of those who refuse to pick the cotton, giving them what he takes from those who do. Don't worry that it demoralizes even further those who do, and allows those who don't to live amongst those who do, thus chasing away those who do, like critters fleeing a fire or élan vital a growing tumor: it's all done in the name of compassion.

A lot of socialists in America would like to see the VAT added to the existing array.

For anybody with an entrepreneurial streak, it really can't get much worse than Western Europe. Oh sure, overall living is better than a third world country. Coupled with the diversity police and all of those cameras in London and elsewhere, it almost gets to the point where anybody with any skill should just go the way of John Galt.

Pardon the reference to Jewess Ayn Rand.

One thing that is problematic is about 50 percent of Americans pay no federal income tax. Easy to vote for higher taxes if you have no stake in the game.

VAT is a way to get the poor to pay taxes too, and they should pay taxes since they always so enthusiastically hold their hands open when it comes to voting time.

Federal bankruptcy is a WN goal. Oppose all tax increases and take as much loot from the feds as you legally can.
