Argumentum ad Absurdum: 99% Taxation Will Grow Economy Super Good.Submitted by Chris Concomitantski on Sun, 02/24/2013 - 19:18
Seems like there's been plenty of discussion supporting a taxation rate of 0%. Those who don't agree say there has to be some taxation for society or government or whatever to work. Sure our roads and electrical grid are nice now. But how much nicer could they be if the tax rate was 100% for everybody?
Please help me compile a list of all the wonderful things we can expect with a 100% taxation rate. A few that suggest themselves:
-Food stamps for everyone
-Plenty of government housing projects
-Doctors everywhere because education would be free!
And best of all, people will take extra-good care of the housing and electrical grid because they will have that good-old feeling of pride that comes with shared ownership.
Thanks for all the input. I have voted on all the ideas submitted and have decided that a taxation rate of 99% would be the best rate for stimulating economic expansion and for making happiest workers.
Taxation of 99% will leave happy worker with 1% of their earnings. This means that worker will have to earn 99x more money to maintain current satisfaction levels of glorious society. 99x more work will result in most favorable abundance and future worker glory.
This is all. Return to work. Your paycheck will be docked for the time you took to read this. This is all.
