Establishing the Origins of the Establishment

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork, being shared by an acquaintance from here, and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“I don’t think people realize how the establishment became established. It simply stole the land and property off the poor, surrounded themselves with weak minded sycophants for protection, gave themselves titles and have been wielding power ever since.” – Tony Benn

My Commentary: Obey the law, pay your taxes, and vote! Good slob! Here’s some inter-generational war debt, as a reward for the imperialism, mass murder, and militarized police state that you support!

Confusing Coercion With Consent

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Being Libertarian,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Chuck Wendig (@ChuckWendig): I think the success of GoFundMe campaigns for medical expenses shows that we could probably do it on a national level, creating a collective fund for everyone using something called ‘taxes,’ and we can use it to pay for a thing I’ve invented called ‘universal health care.’
It’s called GoFundMe, not GoFundMeOrElse”

My Commentary: GoFundMe is voluntary and consensual. Taxation Is Theft. Grow a soul, oppressor. Your coercion is showing.

Countering Communism

The following debate took place upon my Facebook wall, after I posted artwork being shared by the page, “I Owe You Only Non-Aggression”…

Rayn

“You didn’t get a refund
You got your stolen money back.
But that’s none of my business.”

Sam B.:

“The freer the market, the freer the people”
Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is

Rayn

Genaire: Direct democracy, free market, no war entanglements. Freedom done right.

Why is SWITZERLAND so RICH?:

Sam B.: You’re not getting a paycheck, you’re getting some of your stolen production back.

Genaire: In the form of a paycheck

Rayn: “The mind of child,” on full display… though, it’s not exactly “wonderful” to witness… Either way: enjoy your fantasy, comrade!

Tax Cuts Will Help Defund Resentment Politics

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

We Need Tax Cuts to Defuse Political Extremism:
https://fee.org/articles/you-should-favor-tax-cuts-especially-if-you-despise-trumpism/

(Jeffrey A. Tucker) Donald Trump has revived his earlier tax proposal that would (it appears) reduce taxes for everyone. The predictable debate has already begun with all the usual posturing.

Is this mainly for the rich? Any tax cut worth doing will disproportionately benefit the rich because the rich pay most of the taxes. That is a given, so anyone barking up this tree is just gaming the debate in hopes of inciting envy.
