[Quote No.66169] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Beware the disruptive influences of too big, too interventionist government:] The more the government is asked to intervene on behalf of some persons and groups at the expense of others, the more difficult it is for anyone to compete in the open market to serve himself by peacefully serving others. No sooner is a special privilege granted by government to a particular person or group than other persons or groups begin fighting to obtain 'their fair share.'" - Paul L. Poirot

[Quote No.66511] Need Area: Money > Tax
"I don't like the income tax. Every time we talk about these taxes we get around to the idea of ''from each according to his capacity and to each according to his needs.'' That's socialism. It's written in the Communist Manifesto. Maybe we ought to see that every person who gets a tax return receives a copy of the Communist Manifesto with it so he can see what's happening to him." - T. Coleman Andrews

[Quote No.66998] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The avarice of Galerius [260-311 A.D.], or perhaps the exigencies of the state, had induced him to make a very strict and rigorous inquisition into the property of his subjects, for the purpose of a general taxation, both on their lands and on their persons. A very minute survey appears to have been taken of their real estates; and wherever there was the slightest suspicion of concealment, torture was very freely employed to obtain a sincere declaration of their personal wealth." - Edward Gibbon

[Quote No.67010] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Of one man in especial, beyond any one else, the citizens of a republic should beware, and that is of the man who appeals to them to support him on the ground that he is hostile to other citizens of the republic, that he will secure for those who elect him, in one shape or another, profit at the expense of other citizens of the republic... It makes no difference whether he appeals to class hatred or class interest, to religious or anti-religious prejudice. The man who makes such an appeal should always be presumed to make it for the sake of furthering his own interest. The very last thing an intelligent and self-respecting member of a democratic community should do is to reward any public man because that public man says that he will get the private citizen something to which this private citizen is not entitled, or will gratify some emotion or animosity which this private citizen ought not to possess... If a public man tries to get your vote by saying that he will do something wrong in your interest, you can be absolutely certain that if ever it becomes worth his while he will do something wrong against your interest." - Theodore Roosevelt
(1858 - 1919), Theodore Roosevelt Jr., often referred to as Teddy Roosevelt or his initials T. R., was an American statesman, conservationist, naturalist, historian and writer, who served as the 26th president of the United States from 1901 to 1909. This quote from his superb Sorbonne address, originally delivered in Paris on April 23 of 1910 under the title “Citizenship in a Republic” and later published as “Duties of the Citizen” in the 1920 volume 'Roosevelt's Writings'.

"[Charity and philanthropy:-] A purely voluntary good deed is certainly something that I like doing. But when the recipient uses it as a claim on further favours and rewards me with hate if I refuse, when he insists on my being his perpetual benefactor just because I initially took pleasure in helping him, then charity becomes burdensome and pleasure vanishes." - Jean-Jacques Rousseau

[Quote No.67272] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The government's role, construction and funding, among other things, including how to change these things, are determined by the 'social contract' or 'constitution' entered into by the governed. The funding can be whatever is agreed by those entering the agreement. For example...1: [consumer 'tax'] that each individual pays the same for whatever service they use regardless of who they are and their existing wealth and income, like a person does when they buy a loaf of bread or a car; or 2: [proportional tax] that each individual pays differently for whatever service they use depending on who they are and their existing wealth and income by... proportion of their income like Christian Churches used to expect tithing of 10 per cent of their income so as their income differed so did their contribution but the proportion was the same; or 3: [progressive tax] that each individual pays differently for whatever service they use depending on who they are and their existing wealth and income by... proportion of their income like Christian Churches used to expect tithing of 10 percent of their income, but that this proportion rises with each tranche of their income so some pay none, some pay 10 percent, and others pay 10 percent on some of their income and then 20 percent on the next tranche of their income and so on progressively increasing the proportion of what they pay depending on which tranche or tier of income they earn. There are even some political economies that agree that no-one but the government owns anything including their own labor so people don't earn and then fund the government rather the government just funds them." - Seymour@imagi-natives.com

"The more one considers the matter, the clearer it becomes that redistribution is in effect far less a redistribution of free income from the richer to the poorer, as we imagined, than a redistribution of power from the individual [free citizen] to the State [politician-bureaucrat whether representative democratic, fascist, socialist or communist, etc]." - Bertrand de Jouvenel

[Quote No.67508] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Flat tax versus progressive taxation:] Taxation of earnings from labor is on a par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone's labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities. [Also consider what each taxpayer gets in return for their contribution to the government and the cost of this same service for a diversity of other citizens and if this is equal or does the same government service cost different individual citizens different amounts. Then ask if that would be considered fair and justified, if for example, the service was baking and providing a loaf of bread and that that service cost different amounts depending on who the person was and instead of their capacity to pay, the amount was unequal and varied by age, gender, race, religion, friendship, familial relationship-nepotism, education, profession, eye-hair color, political affiliation, political contribution, political vote, etc?]" - Robert Nozick

[Quote No.68073] Need Area: Money > Tax
"The war against illegal plunder has been fought since the beginning of the world. But how is... legal plunder to be identified? Quite simply. See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. Then abolish this law without delay ... If such a law is not abolished immediately it will spread, multiply and develop into a system." - Frederic Bastiat
(1801-1850), Claude Frederic Bastiat, French economist, statesman, and author. He did most of his writing during the years just before -- and immediately following -- the French Revolution of February 1848. Source: "The Law" by Frederic Bastiat (1848).

[Quote No.68121] Need Area: Money > Tax
"In...politics people\'s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners ... [and so on. This is not the way to get the best political system or to vote intelligently and responsibly. The political franchise requires: engagement and thought; researched and well-founded principles rather than just personal greed; or else unscrupulous, power-hungry politicians will be able to buy off the disengaged and unprincipled with empty promises and trinkets, ironically often paid for with their own money taken in taxes or extracted from less privileged minorities in other ways!]" - Mark Twain

"The career of a politician mainly consists in making one part of the nation do what it does not want to do, in order to please and satisfy the other part of the nation. It is the prolonged sacrifice of the rights of some persons at the bidding and for the satisfaction of other persons. The ruling idea of the politician - stated rather bluntly - is that those who are opposed to him exist for the purpose of being made to serve his ends, if he can get power enough in his hands to force these ends upon them!" - Auberon Herbert

[Quote No.68338] Need Area: Money > Tax
"[Political power buying votes from the public in general - 'statist largesse' - and from business entities - 'çrony capitalism'; Government spending - especially deficit spending, central bank interest rates and taxes; There are dangers in keeping interest rates too low for too long as well as running too large government deficits, for example today's irrationally exuberant property and share markets that have nothing to do with the real economy as well as runaway inflation harming those least financially able to cope:] Since the global financial crisis, and particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, fiscal and monetary policymakers have operated as if there are no tradeoffs to their expansionary policy programs. Now that economic conditions have changed, they may soon have to relearn old lessons the hard way. Smart economic policymaking invariably requires trading off some pain today for greater future gains. But this is a difficult proposition politically, especially in democracies. It is always easier for elected leaders to indulge their constituents immediately, on the hope that the bill will not arrive while they are still in office. Moreover, those who bear the pain caused by a policy are not necessarily those who will gain from it. That is why today's more advanced economies created mechanisms that allow them to make hard choices when necessary. Chief among these are independent central banks and mandated limits on budget deficits. Importantly, political parties reached a consensus to establish and back these mechanisms irrespective of their own immediate political priorities. One reason why many emerging markets have swung from crisis to crisis is that they failed to achieve such consensus. But recent history shows that developed economies, too, are becoming less tolerant of pain, perhaps because their own political consensus has eroded. ... The standard line is that the unconstrained spending was driven by a sense that unprecedented times called for unprecedented measures. In fact, it was the response to the 2008 global financial crisis that broke the previous consensus for more prudent policies. Lasting public resentment that Wall Street had been helped more than Main Street motivated politicians in both major parties to spend with abandon when the pandemic hit. But targeted unemployment benefits were associated with the Democrats, leaving Republicans seeking wins for their own constituencies. Who better to support than small businesses? While political fractures were driving up untargeted spending, budget hawks were nowhere to be found: Their voices had been steadily drowned out by economists. In addition to the cranks who show up periodically to advocate ostensibly free lunches through money-financed spending, a growing chorus of mainstream economists had been arguing that prevailing low interest rates gave developed countries significantly more room to expand fiscal deficits. Politicians who were eager to justify their policies ignored these economists' caveats – that spending had to be sensible, and that interest rates had to stay low. Only the headline message mattered, and anyone suggesting otherwise was dismissed as a hair-shirt fanatic. Historically, it has been the Fed's job to take away the monetary punch bowl before the party gets frenzied, and Congress's job to be prudent about fiscal deficits and debt. But the Fed’s desire to spare the market from pain has driven more risk-taking, and reinforced expectations of further interventions. The Fed's actions have also added to the pressure on Congress to do its bit for Main Street, which in turn has led to inflation and a belief that the Fed will back off from raising rates. All of this makes a return to the previous consensus more difficult. When the Fed does raise rates significantly, the government's costs of servicing the debt from past spending will limit future spending, including on policies to reduce inequality (which has fueled political fragmentation), combat future emergencies, and tackle climate change. Every economy has a limited reservoir of policy credibility and resources, which are best used to mitigate genuine economic distress, not to shield those who can bear some pain. If everyone wants a free lunch, the bill eventually will be paid by those least able to afford it. Emerging-market economies have had to learn this the hard way. Developed countries may have to learn it again." - Raghuram G. Rajan
He is the former governor of the Reserve Bank of India and the current Professor of Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business as well as an author, most recently, of 'The Third Pillar: How Markets and the State Leave the Community Behind' (Penguin, 2020).

[Quote No.68549] Need Area: Money > Tax
"... as all history informs us, there has been in every State and Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever ..." - Benjamin Franklin

[Quote No.68757] Need Area: Money > Tax
"Should a robber break into my house, and with a dagger at my throat make me seal deeds to convey my estate to him, would this give him any title? Just such a title, by his sword, has an unjust conqueror, who forces me into submission. The injury and the crime is equal, whether committed by the wearer of a crown, or some petty villain. The title of the offender, and the number of his followers, make no difference in the offence, unless it be to aggravate it. The only difference is, great robbers punish little ones, to keep them in their obedience; but the great ones are rewarded with laurels and triumphs, because they are too big for the weak hands of justice in this world, and have the power in their own possession, which should punish offenders.

"[Not all government behaviours - including taxes - are justified.

For example, we all have a natural right to defend ourselves against predators. Since we possess that right, we can delegate authority to government to defend us. By contrast, we don't have a natural right to take the property of one person to give to another; therefore, we cannot legitimately delegate such authority to government." - Walter E. Williams
