Question for socialists Watch
I am glad to help out my fellow human beings instead of being a selfish ****.
If all the self-proclaimed socialists voluntarily gave more of their income to the government, there would still be more money going to the government, even if all the non-socialists did not. So why aren't they doing this?
Why are you giving to the government then?
You'd be better of giving it to an actual charity instead if you want to help out your fellow human beings.
I like to think the government spends my money wisely on important factors in society anyway.
How are we meant to pay this extra tax. Why would pay it just so a government can continue with austerity. It would also make negligible difference.
Somewhat strange coming from a socialist but I believe we need as little tax coming from working people as possible tbh.
I believe in equality of opportunity but if you are a hard working person then you should be paying as little necessary into the kitty.
2. Because many of them probably wouldn't be particularly happy with how the treasury is spending that money in the first place. Raising taxes only works in a socialist model if those taxes are actually being used for socialist aims, which isn't exactly the situation at the moment.
Of course. Charity is great! But socialists don't seem to have any interest in charity, that is voluntary giving, they only seem to desire the forceful taking of money against people's will. Why is that?
Socialists are interested in the redistribution of wealth, whether that means voluntarily providing their own money, and forcefully taking others money.
So this is what Socialists do instead. We put our money into Cooperatives which in turn use that money on a loan basis to create lots of other Cooperative business else where. This provides jobs for people and ensures land, labor and capital are used for the benefit of ordinary people.
Its better to do it this way then surrender our wealth to Governments who aren't going to give it to those who need it. We have had Neo-Liberalism for the last 35 years. Why the hell would any Socialist fund Neo-Liberalism?
