The rich pay lower income taxes. Or so claim woke social justice dividers. Well, no.

The problem of excess government, non-stop government spending, non-stop wars, unending government debt, more and more invasive government restrictions on your individual rights, etc. cannot be fixed by raising taxes on rich people. Pocahontas Warren, Joe Biden et al are liars.

Taxes and never ending growth of parasitic governments are the true lesson of the “Tragedy of the Commons”. No one will take care of the commons, the pasture that is used in common by the community. The pasture will always be overgrazed until destroyed. No individual owns it, has responsibility for it, takes care of it as if it were their own. For example, this is how billions of dollars and weapons disappear from defense departments, environmental agencies, health agencies, intelligence agencies. Hillary Clinton infamously claimed ‘it takes a village’ to raise a child, a blatant communist edict which guarantees a tragic outcome, a child and adult who will become a victim and burden on the village. Community organizers like Saul Alinsky and his best student Barack Obama and their equivalents in other countries will strip the skin off your bones, off your children and your grand children and the promote the tragedy they created as an example of racism, government abuse, and their political opponents. For example, the Obama administration built chain-link cages to house illegal immigrants at the U.S. border and then pushed executive orders and policies he knew where illegal to overfill those cages, and still today they blame that on their political opponents.

All the way back in the 1600s, the settlers in Boston Massachusetts Colony learned this lesson of the “Tragedy of the Commons.” The common pasture becomes abused and worthless. Trusting the commonly shared resource (e.g., pasture, government budgets, defense, food reserves, currencies, education, healthcare, etc) to the community failed every time. THIS tragic lesson of the commons learned by strict, moral and religious adherents to discipline is how free trade, individual sovereignty and what became known over 100 years later as capitalism became standard practice, common law and Constitution in the United States in 1776. What is today called “woke,” progressive, social justice, environmental justice, etc. is in fact regressive bend-the-knee, kiss-the-ring servitude to bigger and bigger, more expensive out-of-control government (previously known as communism) where everyone is subservient to the common good, dependent on the shared pasture which everyone uses in common but no one owns or cares for.
