I don’t see how the tax hikes go to help “the capitalists”, if anything, it hurts the pure capitalists.
You’ve got to be fucking kidding me.
Who the tax hikes will help are the Corporatists or the oligarchists or the presidents men or whatever you want to call them. Those that don’t want to play by the rules of free market capitalism and want to play by the rules of corruption.
It’s not ‘corporatism,’ you fucking dolt. The capitalists are the ones who control the means of production; it doesn’t matter if those in control are also helped by the State. A small business owner is no more a ‘pure capitalist’ than the head of AT&T or Monsanto. Turns out (and this is something you dumb fucking AnCaps should realize) the State is a mechanism by which one class ensures the oppression of another.
The State is a necessary aspect of capitalism; the power of the capitalists is ensured by the State, by involuntary subordination, by coercion.
This is why the only mutualist I follow is Baker.
The rest of you are angry for the sake of being angry. You don’t even know what you’re angry at.
Capitalism is the voluntary exchange of goods and services. Voluntary. You see that word? That means that there are no hidden deals, no leeching, no distribution of goods, services, capital or whatever through the use of force.
Taxation is a use of force, therefore it can not be a medium of exchange in which a capitalist engages in.
I’m a “fucking dolt”, a “dumb fuck” or any other adjective you want to apply to me simply because you have no idea what a capitalist is and therefore assign it a definition which fits your prejudice.
You want to cast blame, cast blame my friend. There are plenty to vilify in today’s society and within our economic system. But to blame capitalism for something that isn’t a result of capitalism just shows how naive and devoid of knowledge you are.
