Sufficient Funding

Is taxation really necessary

How to counter the claim that voluntary funding could not replace taxation Retweet
Our previous Mental Lever message introduced the idea of consumer controlled governance. We advocate “consumer controlled governance” as the Zero Aggression alternative to The State. Such governance would be funded voluntarily, without taxes. Consumers would exert control by deciding how much funding to provide to various government services.

By Perry Willis & Jim Babka
After reading this Mental Lever, we hope you’ll decide to employ it in the following ways…

  1. Use it in conversations
  2. Copy it and link to it in email and social media conversations
  3. Like AND Share it on Facebook
  4. …or Google+
  5. Retweet it
