C4SS Feed 44 presents Kevin Carson‘s “‘Redistribute Wealth By Heavy Taxes’? It’s Already Been Done” read by Tony Dreher and edited by Nick Ford.
The main thing governments have existed for, since the beginning of history, is to levy taxes on workers and producers in order to provide rents for the economic ruling classes that control the state. Short of taxing the rich at the same rate they tax us — which would be basically everything they make — they’re going to come out ahead. The “progressive” tax agenda just amounts to slowing the rate at which the rich rob us. It would make a lot more sense to abolish all the legal monopolies by which the rich rob the poor in the first place.
