I have long argued that taxation is nothing less than a human right of The State. The logic of this is obvious.
Human rights are created by the law.
Tax is created by The State using the same process of law.
Therefore tax is a human right.
It is obvious when you think it through logically. Perhaps I will draw a Venn diagram illustrating this later.
But let us not ignore the implications of tax being a human right. It logically follows, so obviously that only a sophist would disagree, that ash individual’s human rights are dependent on having paid the right amount of tax.
So if you have paid the right amount of tax, The State probably won’t force you to forfeit your human rights. But if you have paid the wrong amount of tax, your human rights, which are predicated on having paid the right amount of tax, are invalidated.
Rather like cars needing to publicly display their road tax contribution, I believe that all human beings should be required to display a badge, issued by The State or a suitable NGO run by a suitably qualified tax expert, telling people that they have paid a fair amount of tax.
People without such badges will not be afforded the protection that the law provides for their human rights. So they will not be allowed to hold property, talk or behave freely, participate in a religion of their choosing, use public property or not be deprived of life.
Anybody who does not wear this “fair tax mark” may be, quite rightly, shot on site by State officials. And I would encourage Citizens of Courage to take the law into their own hands. After all, these payers of unfair tax have no right to human rights at all so you can run them over in the street.
Given that the person has no right to property, you would be entitled to remove whatever money or possessions you deem appropriate to compensate you for your effort and any damage done to your car.
Of course, I do not expect neoliberals to agree with me because they prefer to live in a society which encourages the abuse of human rights. I daresay I will have to delete their comments, often coming from stupid monikers, which typically suggest that I am somehow being illogical or playing fast and loose with the truth or, worse still, simply disagree with me.
That is clearly abusive behaviour that I, the Voice of Civil Society, shall not foster here.
