Imagine thinking that people using the existing tax code to keep as much of their money as they possibly can as "billions lost".

AKA everybody arguing about taxes while the owner class fucks the worker class. It's gotten more decentralized since the days of monarchs, and we have cool gadgets and gizmos to entertain us and give us happy lives. But the core structure hasn't changed. There's a small slice of humanity that has almost all the stuff, and they get to decide how much stuff everybody else gets.

Workers that fight each other over tax rates, instead fighting the capital class, are the perfect example of the passive acceptance Carlin mentioned.

Anyone remember Occupy Wall Street?

Funny how fast that turned into right vs left, black vs white, male vs female

Anything vs anything that is not finance

You're right, they do! It has never been easier to survive in human history.

And thats one of the major problems in the western world.

Human beings have an innate need to fight for survival. Humans need to feel like their efforts have made the world a better, more controllable place.

These days, nobody has to hunt for food, or hike for water, or find shelter from bad weather.

So in lieu of any actual real problems, they piss about whatever bathroom that they feel most comfortable taking a piss.

The average person is pretty dumb just like it's dumb to post in this thread which will probably be deleted.

Hey someone reads it before it gets deleted

Your browser caught the keystrokes, and recorded them for "marketing data"

It's all out there in the ether somewhere

I decided it's right and proper that the stupider half don't have to pay anything because they're holy and pure in their vulgarity, as we should all be.

The meek shall inherit and shit.
