This feminist above is called Dawn Foster. She is a journalist from The Guardian. During the TV programme The Big Questions she defended taxes rise above 50%. In fact, she said she was happy to pay 70% in taxes. Can you imagine paying 70% in taxes? Nanny State parasites and socialists love that. Normally, they don’t build wealth. Someone else must pay for them. They still believe the government is superior to personal choices.
The Big Questions is usually presented by Nicky Campbell. It is broadcast live on BBC One between 10:00am on Sundays. On 14th May two questions were asked:
1-Is it right to take more than 50% in tax?
2-Do we have a right not to be offended?
This feminist is also against capitalism.
We are not surprised about feminist opinions. Feminists and socialists think the government is their hero. They think the government is perfect. They think everything is free. BUT they forget the government doesn’t create wealth. In fact, our taxes are the government money source. More you want from the government, more taxes would be raised.
The prominent economist Milton Friedman said once: “There is no such thing as a free lunch? (Explaining: Whatever goods and services are provided, they must be paid for by someone – that is, you don’t get something for nothing).
Milton Friedman believed the Government had three primary functions. His words:
“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government– in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.”
Milton Friedman was not alone. Economists as Thomas Sowell and Ludwig von Mises were against socialism and the Nanny State.
Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it (Thomas Sowell ).
Sadly, we still can see people defending socialism due to ignorance in relation to political agendas and economics. It is shameful that some of our politicians want to implement socialism in the UK. It is a shame that feminists support them. Where there is socialism, there is poverty and misery. Do your research about Cuba and Venezuela.
We are still blaming the people that are wealthy in the UK how terrible villains. What if they honesty worked for that? Are Margharet and John guilty for have worked hard for 20 years and have made good business decisions to have some wealth? Is the small businessman/ woman guilty for try to increase his wealth opening a business and creating jobs?
Socialists and feminists are still using the same strategies, tactics and arguments based on class struggle and their supposed good intentions and worries about the poor. What’s their solution? More taxes, more Nanny State, more government dependency. What do they offer? Nothing
We should remember that Socialists / Nanny States are full of poor people escaping from their own countries ( North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela).
Winston Churchill once said: “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”. This quote is still relevant.
Feminists are supporting raises taxes. We are not surprised. From feminist strategies to tactics and arguments used the feminist agenda is politically clear. In Britain, the women’s movement has been allied with the socialists and communists for decades.
It is time to wake up and learn some economics, people. The feminist agenda is politically clear.
