    Yes, yes. Taxes are theft and government should be privately funded. I assume by setting up government owned businesses?

    Move from an income tax to a consumption tax. That way people pay taxes willingly, not the government just taking what it wants.

During the time I possess it, the distribution of wealth is in a certain physical state. In order to bring about a state of justice, it has to be redistributed.
    The poor are not poor because they got stolen from. They are poor because they keep doing the things that made them poor.
    The rich are not rich because they stole their money from the poor. They are rich because the keep doing the things that made them rich.

    Theft is theft no matter what you call it.

    The rich haven't stolen from the poor.

    They grabbed the money before the poor could get it in the first place.

    You speak as if there is only a fixed supply of money, rather than the reality that wealth is produced.

    There is not a fixed amount of wealth. Wealth is created. It’s not a pie that when eaten there is no more. We just make another pie (and this time its apple instead of cherry).

    When those who have most of the existing "pie" get most of the new "pie" BECAUSE they have most of the existing "pie" the "pie" might as well be called "fixed".

    It is obvious that you have never passed an economics course.
