The Income Tax as the Main Enabler of Government Criminality

Here is my latest article on Activist Post, The Income Tax Is the Main Enabler of the Government’s Criminality Against the People

The main enabler of the government’s institutionalized criminality is the income tax, the government’s seizures of private earnings and wealth.

Government and all its intrusions into our lives are funded involuntarily with the government having the illicit power to take people’s income and wealth.

The income tax is a scheme in which one side (the government) demands a take from the earnings of the other side (the workers and producers), involuntarily. Such a transaction is in the absence of a voluntary contract, making such a transaction illegitimate, and criminal in fact. No different from a robber demanding your money on threat of violence.

Don’t you have a right to not be robbed? And also do we not have a right to our privacy?

In a free society, no one would have the power to demand your private information to have to report to the authorities, such as where you work, what you do for a living, what investments you have, how much you make, what you do with your income, and so on.

If it’s none of your neighbors’ business, then it’s none of the government’s business, I always say.

As Murray Rothbard explains in his book, The Ethics of Liberty,

For there is one crucially important power inherent in the nature of the State apparatus. All other persons and groups in society (except for acknowledged and sporadic criminals such as thieves and bank robbers) obtain their income voluntarily: either by selling goods and services to the consuming public, or by voluntary gift … Only the State obtains its revenue by coercion, by threatening dire penalties should the income not be forthcoming. That coercion is known as “taxation,” although in less regularized epochs it was often known as “tribute.” Taxation is theft, purely and simply even though it is theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match. It is a compulsory seizure of the property of the State’s inhabitants, or subjects.

It would be an instructive exercise for the skeptical reader to try to frame a definition of taxation which does not also include theft. Like the robber, the State demands money at the equivalent of gunpoint; if the taxpayer refuses to pay his assets are seized by force, and if he should resist such depredation, he will be arrested or shot if he should continue to resist.

And, Rothbard elaborates on the nature of the State in his Anatomy of the State,

The State, in the words of Oppenheimer, is the “organization of the political means”; it is the systematization of the predatory process over a given territory… The State provides a legal, orderly, systematic channel for the predation of private property; it renders certain, secure, and relatively “peaceful” the lifeline of the parasitic caste in society. Since production must always precede predation, the free market is anterior to the State. The State has never been created by a “social contract”; it has always been born in conquest and exploitation.

The truth is, most of the government programs that are funded involuntarily by America’s workers and producers are mainly embezzlement, extortion and money laundering schemes. Such schemes just would not receive any actual funding from the general population in any voluntary way, because no one in his right mind would voluntarily fund such crap.

Sadly, the statists among the Republicans and so-called conservatives, who allegedly profess “moral values,” don’t want to address the criminality of government thefts of private earnings and wealth. Statists are drawn to the involuntarily-funded government racket.

And yes, the government is a racket, especially the larger and more centralized it is. Take the D.C. Leviathan. (Please.)

And the involuntary income tax-thefts are enablers.

The involuntary tax-thefts enable the FBI/DOJ gestapo to investigate parents who complain at school committee meetings as “domestic terrorists,” enable the FBI/DOJ gestapo to concoct kidnapping schemes to entrap hapless patsies, and enable the FBI/DOJ gestapo to instigate Capitol riots and hold innocent people in solitary confinement and torture them for their political beliefs.

Would you voluntarily pay for an investigative service that treated its customers the way FBI and DOJ have been treating innocent Americans?

Would CIA and FBI agents have the time to do their election interference with Twitter and other shenanigans were they not funded by the involuntary income tax-thefts?

And the involuntary income tax-thefts also enable the “authorities” to have the power to halt oil and gas exploration and production, putting Americans into rolling blackouts and third-world status, in the name of following the “climate change” cult. Nullification would resolve that issue, by the way.

The income tax enables the criminality of bureaucrats giving handouts to their corrupt counterparts in foreign countries like Ukraine, and has enabled the warmongering inflicted by Washington against Koreans and Vietnamese, and Iraqis and Afghans, and whatever places in the world that Washington’s bureaucrats can rationalize tax-funded welfare for the “defense” industry, like Boeing, Raytheon, Northrup Grumman, et al.

And the income tax enables handouts to the pharmaceutical industry like Pfizer, who get their tax-funded billions by fraudulently selling drugs and vaccines that are more or less snake oil but worshiped by the establishment medical cartel and by gullible sheeple.

Besides income taxes, there are other involuntary tax-thefts, such as property taxes which enable the government schools to push activists’ sex-perversions and child predator agendas onto the kids. Who in his right mind would voluntarily pay to fund such “schools”?

By the way, property taxes are another involuntary, contract-less payment demanded by the government, under the guise of “ownership.”

If you own a home or property, who actually is the owner of that property? Actually, the local government is the ultimate owner and your property tax is really a payment of rent that permits you to make use of the property but nevertheless with restrictions, such as what the town’s zoning dictators allow you to do. Property taxes are just as illegitimate as income taxes.

At the very least, getting rid of the federal income taxes will effect in pulling away the enabler of a lot of government criminality against the people. (And then people need to get rid of their states’ own involuntary state income taxes, for sure.)

When asked about repealing the income tax and what we would replace it with, former Congressman Ron Paul, whose motto is “Don’t steal — the government hates competition,” would answer, replace it with nothing.

So repeal the income tax-thefts and replace them with nothing. Most of the agencies, bureaus, policies, impositions, schemes, violations and intrusions by the federal government in Washington are unconstitutional, simply because they are not authorized by the U.S. Constitution.

So if people really want such schemes to exist, it would be up to them to fund the programs voluntarily rather than getting the government to rob their neighbors to do so.

Will Government Bureaucrats Finally Acknowledge the Truth about “Operation Warp Speed” and mRNA Drug Injections?

The White House Covid czar i.e. propagandist “Dr.” Ashish Jha has been saying that, “The most important thing Americans can do is to go get their updated COVID-19 vaccine right away,” when he knows that’s just not true.

What is wrong with these people? Is “Dr.” Jha really ignorant, or is he just a liar? (Well, he is a bureaucrat, after all.) “Doctors” Fauci, Walensky, Murthy, et al. are just as dishonest.

Why do these people constantly use the words, “vaccinated,” “inoculated,” especially “immunized,” when referring to the mRNA drug injection? If you get that two-shot drug injection, and boosters, you will not be “immunized.” And not only does it not provide “immunity,” we know from all the reports of adverse reactions, all the cancers, myocarditis, heart failure and other unexpected illnesses following receiving the mRNA drug injection, that the mRNA destroys people’s immune systems.

I’ve linked to many articles on this just in the past few months. Here is the latest one, a young guy dying at age 35 and once again the authorities are silent about the cause of death!

Those “doctors” know the Pfizer/Moderna mRNA “vaccine” (that’s not a vaccine but is a therapeutic or treatment for already existing disease) does not prevent infection of Covid and it does not prevent transmission of the virus. They know this.

I have a lot of information about that in this article with many links to more articles (some of which I will paste in below) if you want to know the truth. We are not being told the truth about any of this by government “public health” bureaucrats and certainly not by corporate media. They are shills for the pharmaceutical companies.

“Oh, they wouldn’t lie to us, telling us the vaccines are ‘safe and effective,’ if they aren’t ‘safe and effective’! My doctor wouldn’t say that the vaccine couldn’t possibly be responsible for my new illness if it could have been,” many people exclaim.

Well, on this new rushed experimental mRNA injection many doctors are in denial. (Although some of them are corrupt, and can’t wait for their next government handout, or their next kickback from the pharma merchants, no doubt.)

But no, the official government and media narrative is the misinformation that these “vaccines” will protect you from Covid. And colleges are requiring that the young students entering or returning to college get these mRNA drugs injected into their bodies.

Meanwhile, the younger people are the ones most adversely affected by the shots, especially with heart problems. Especially the young athletes.

Naomi Wolf spoke at Yale recently to the youngins about these dangerous shots. She wants the young people to know about the adverse effects caused by the mRNA drug injections. And she discussed the tens of thousands of documents, obtained through Freedom of Information Act request, documents that Pfizer wanted hidden from the people for decades. The documents reveal that Pfizer and the FDA knew prior to the “vaccine” rollout about the adverse effects and the deaths that they had already caused.

So, contrary to what “Dr.” Jha-Jha, who I mentioned at the top, says about getting your “vaccine” that’s not a vaccine and booster that’s not a booster, some of the best things to do to protect yourself are staying healthy and taking vitamin D and zinc every day to keep your immune system strong.

And here are some older but still relevant articles for further reading (I’ll just paste in the URL rather than type out the titles, etc) And no, these are not from “conspiracy theory” websites, as they are not published by the CDC, HHS, NIH or FDA:

Media Silence on Twitter Files Story: No Big Surprise

Glenn Beck on the radio was just talking about the silence and crickets coming from the corporate “news” media in their ignoring the Big Story of Twitter having been banning certain people from Twitter.

Elon Musk has been revealing some of the communications of the high-up Twitter honchos, with the help of Matt Taibbi, Bari Weiss and Michael Shellenberger. The communications show that Twitter was “shadow banning” and blacklisting some people but publicly referring to the shadow banning as “visibility filtering,” or VF.

Now, “news” media out there ignoring this story are showing their true colors, because they know they themselves have been acting not as journalists but as propagandists for the government, for the regime in Washington mostly. And the Twitter Files we have been shown now demonstrate how Twitter has also been acting as propagandists for the regime.

In many cases, because a lot of corporate media flunkies are very shallow and “not the brightest bulbs,” or they’re corrupt government apparatchiks, or both, they merely repeat word for word what bureaucrats tell them, without any investigative research on their part.

Or the “news” media follow a particular agenda and suppress any information that contradicts their agenda or the government narrative (which is a redundancy there). That’s what CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYT, WaPo, and the social media companies such as Twitter have been doing.

Stephen Lendman refers to the Society of Professional Journalists’ Code of Ethics, which notes that journalists must “provide a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues,” and “strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty.” (No, it’s not satire.)

On the Russia-Ukraine issue, Lendman refers to the Wall Street Journal citing “unnamed ‘military strategists’,” and showing its bias toward the Ukrainian Nazis. (The War Street Journal, that is.) And Lendman describes the bias of the Washington Post and the New York Times (a.k.a. Washington Pest and New York Slimes) in their distortion of the situation in Ukraine.

The corporate media have had this hatred toward Russia since Donald Trump entered the political picture, whereas in the old days they LOVED Russia!

And Charles Burris has some videos showing the media merely repeating word for word what the bureaucrats are telling them to tell their viewers, listeners and readers.

It’s a very sad time in the fields of journalism and media, alas.

Some Music for the Holiday Season

It’s the holiday season, and many orchestras and ballet companies are performing Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Now, the video here of the full 2+ hour long ballet doesn’t show the actual ballet dancers in performance, it’s just the music. But it’s great music.
