It needs to implement policies that actually fulfill its legitimate function of securing and reconciling the equal rights of all to life, liberty, and property in the fruits of their labor.
That's clearly just another stupid, infantile "meeza hatesa gubmint" whine from you, as the contrasts between Slovenia and Somalia, Switzerland and Swaziland, and Canada and Cameroon prove.Government is, and can never be but stupid, unfair, corrupt, and economically destructive.
BWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!I reject your attacks on the foundation of civilization in property rights.
Read and learn, dumpling:
“When the emancipation of the African was spoken of, and when the nation of Britain appeared to be taking into serious consideration the rightfulness of abolishing slavery, what tremendous evils were to follow! Trade was to be ruined, commerce was almost to cease, and manufacturers were to be bankrupt. Worse than all, private property was to be invaded (property in human flesh), the rights of planters sacrificed to the speculative notions of fanatics, and the British government was to commit an act that would forever deprive it of the confidence of British subjects.”
–Patrick Edward Dove, The Theory of Human Progression, 1850
What nice ideological company you keep: apologists for slavery.
The foundation of civilization is property in products of labor, not in land, as history proves so very conclusively. Hong Kong has NO private landowning, and it is not only highly civilized and prosperous, but routinely tops lists of the world's freest societies. The earliest foundation of Western civilization in Egypt's Old Kingdom ran on a land tax that came close to LVT, and collapsed after it abandoned that tax system. The great foundation of Western democracy and culture, ancient Athens, raised a large part of its public revenue by renting out common lands, as did Rome.
BWAHAHAHAHHHAHAAAAAAA!!Nationalization of all land through taking of the total price of land purchase is simply land communism.
I guess that must be why KARL MARX HIMSELF called it, "capitalism's last ditch."
I guess that must be why dozens of eminent Western economists, including four (count 'em, FOUR) Nobel laureates publicly urged the XSSR to retain land in public ownership as it transitioned from communist rule to a market economy.
You are really good at finding new ways to make a fool of yourself.
You don't know that. Others may be more willing to think than you are.And once again you are not making any converts here.
"To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men..."You don't understand liberty at all...It shows in your 'we need government ' line.
Jefferson and the other Founders understood liberty, dumpling. You do not. When they wrote the Articles of Confederation, they made a LAND TAX the SOLE SOURCE of federal government revenue. If they had had the will to resist the landowner sabotage and greed that almost wrecked the union and resulted in the Constitution, the world would today be a far freer, fairer and wealthier place.
