    All out Socialism is impractical and out and out Capitalism is abhorrent.

    Scandinavian style Social Democracy seems to do the best job of combining the pros of each IMO.

    National insurance pays for it
    Yes it does currently but true Capitalism would include the abolishment of NI along with any form of govt assistance and it being every man for himself.

    And the Abolishment of Tax. Truth is the massive wealth increase and competition from free markets would easily compensate.

    So if we get rid of all taxation then banks are going to be willing pay for all our infrastructure, our health service, our schooling system, our government, our judiciary etc.
    😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

    Also NI is simply tax by another name, it comes out your earnings.

    I'll repeat mine and BornBlue's question:

    Do you seriously think the banks are gozing to fund public services if we abolish tax?

    The only way they could do this is to impose high negative interest rates on people's deposits thereby replacing tax as we know it with another form of tax. Do you advocate the heads of all the banks forming some kind of pseudo parliament?

    They are already funded by the infrastructure in place no need to theft everyone via tax. If there is a lack of "money" you can be sure someone is STEALING it.

    Socialism is a tool for the global elite to asset strip economies.

    "All people are chained down to heavy toil by poverty more firmly than ever. They were chained by slavery and serfdom; from these, one way and another, they might free themselves. These could be settled with, but from want they will never get away. We have included in the constitution such rights as to the masses appear fictitious and not actual rights. All these so-called "Peoples Rights" can exist only in idea, an idea which can never be realized in practical life. What is it to the proletariat laborer, bowed double over his heavy toil, crushed by his lot in life, if talkers get the right to babble, if journalists get the right to scribble any nonsense side by side with good stuff, once the proletariat has no other profit out of the constitution save only those pitiful crumbs which we fling them from our table in return for their voting in favor of what we dictate, in favor of the men we place in power, Republican rights for a poor man are no more than a bitter piece of irony, for the necessity he is under of toiling almost all day gives him no present use of them, but the other hand robs him of all guarantee of regular and certain earnings by making him dependent on strikes by his comrades or lockouts by his masters."

    I asked a yes or no answer. I don't want a link.
    Do you think there should be zero tax?
    If so who will find our roads, police, judiciary, government, health service, military and schools?

    I don't want a link, I want your answers.
    Because you seem to think in the absence of taxation the banks will fund this all...
