OK; How about some definitions of 'work' from posters.
What does 'work' look like from your own personal perspective? Is it always just when performing some deed for another in exchange of an 'agreed' amount? Does it always have to produce an income?
Do you shower 'before' going to work or after we're done? Are you (we) ever done working under our current system? After-all, it could be argued that 'Consumerism' is also a form of work under our current system I suppose.
Does the 'revenue' (whatever form it may take) generated by your efforts at work come from 'earned' income (sweat, labor or thoughts)? Or does it come from 'unearned' income originating from someone else's pockets, minds or property?
Which type of income should be the only one that is taxed? Earned or unearned? Which type of income was the only one taxed, until around 100 years ago? What happened to change it?
OR; do you think there is no difference between the two types? 'Income is income' you might say, in which case we must then ask "why isn't all income treated the same", taxed the same, or controlled by and/or on behalf of the same small group of people and excluding the rest of society.
And what about LAND? Who really owns the LAND? We already know who controls it and what's beneath it. This might take another discussion :-\
Gotta go OOT for a bit, can't wait for all the insights to come……….Ready, set, GOOOOO! :laugh:
