(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #233 - À Contre Courant: For social emancipation! (fr,pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 03 Feb 2014 10:52:21 +0200


Each month, the monthly libertarian Alternative repeated introduction of the Alsatian journal À Contre Courant , which in turn reproduces the introduction of AL. To contact these comrades: ACC, BP 2123, 68060 Mulhouse Cedex. ---- Cheers tax! ---- In all layers of the population, taxes, fees, contributions, etc.., All forms that can take the tax subject to a growing detestation. Layers above, allegedly "suffocated", are nevertheless those who find more breath to denounce, with the extreme right, a strident tone, "confissscatoire fissscalisssme" that "presssure": this n ' is one aspect of the ideological battle they ever lead, to win or to keep winning. ---- The tax is built against them, in order to redistribute wealth in favor of the least favored categories. What remains of this noble intention?

We can measure the extent of the ravages of triumphant liberalism, noting that today the collection of income tax is barely enough to pay the interest - and only the interest - the public debt. A payment promptly, as an absolute priority is given to bankers and speculators who buy up and discreetly, part of the wealth produced; singular "redistribution" which here takes the form of a gigantic heist! The most astonishing of the story is that to succeed this time there agents Capital began by getting a ... lower their taxes by exemption, niches and tax fraud of all kinds that have allowed some to accumulate considerable sums. These are sums that the state has left them, they then lent, with interest, ... State and local authorities and public bodies depleted by these concessions. This is especially convoluted and cheeky, but this impudence of the ruling class is a measure of the continuing apathy of victims down that, for the moment, ignore most of this ongoing and growing scam.

It looked on the spot that the case Cahuzac would release the spirit of revolt. But the light thrown on certain tax depravity has finally provoked the indignation that without actions. In an inert society, individualism and the ideology of powerful quickly take over, each finding an excuse to pay the least possible taxes. In the best case it is looking for an example of taxpayer richer than himself who could pay more, "to make it more fair." In the worst case it means scapegoats as "Roma costing us a fortune." But in the absence of dynamic and collective action or policy insight that can identify the real receivers nor the idea of using an abstraction for abounding Safely ambitious objectives and quality public services, Majority will not appear.

Other examples - as unfair VAT - show that, without a struggle, the tax is handled, devious, depraved. It was only for a better balance of forces we can hope to rehabilitate, reinvigorate and reinstall in its redistributive function.
