Why Taxation and the Census Are Redundant
The national Census form has begun arriving in the letter boxes of citizens throughout the UK this week. The big personal data mining operation is supposed to be used to allocate public services where they’re most needed.
Also this week hundreds of members of the British Constitution Group attempted to make a civil arrest of a judge in Birkenhead court after a failure to pay council tax hearing went sour. Roger Hayes told the Wirral Globe:
“The way council tax is being applied is unlawful. I have written to Wirral Council but they will not reply to my letters. We are calling for everyone, under common law, to stop paying their council tax until change comes.”
The argument against the group is that we all need to pay council tax to fund public services.
However what proponents of the Census and Council Tax fail to understand is that the country is bankrupt. There is NO real money to fund public services, it has to be borrowed by the Government (aka by us) on top of the £4.8 trillion national debt, which then increases that debt.
Any tax collected is irrelevant because it’s so small in comparison. The national debt will continue to rise exponentially, whether tax is collected or not. Anything spent on public services is borrowed money that must be paid back with interest.
The old argument that “our tax dollars paid for this” can no longer stand up to scrutiny. Our tax dollars go directly to the bankers to pay off the national debt, at such an irrelevant ratio that the debt will increase regardless.
At the same time cuts are just as futile. If there were no public services at all, the national debt would still increase on interest payments alone. So the cuts that are being made are simply there to keep the illusion alive, and to keep the citizens in a control system. The banks and bond holders know they won’t get a fraction of their money back, but if the system remains in place, they will still sit on top of all the power and wealth that does exist.
The country is not just financially bankrupt, but morally bankrupt. Forget UK firms, Lockheed Martin the largest American arms manufacturer in the world, who are responsible for the deaths of millions, was given a £150m contract by the Government to help process the UK Census.
Do you really want to support and give your personal data to a company that produces nuclear weapons, fighter jets and works with the US Pentagon? When the data being given is to allocate public services that are being cut and destroyed by the bankers?
There are two options here, continue down the road of ever increasing cuts and poverty while the corrupt financial institutions suck up the rest of the wealth…or join the anti-cuts protests, the boycotting of things like the Census & council tax and demand that the Government enact banking reforms that void the national debt created in our name to murder people overseas, to fund the EU superstate and to bail out the high-street banks that gambled and lost.
It might not be pretty to begin with, but a complete overhaul of the current financial and political elite is the only option for the people that still value freedom. It makes more mathematical sense and more moral sense than any of the yuppies that still support tax and personal data mining through the Census.
