Global Tax is Global Tyranny

According to a September 19th article from the French news agency AFP, as reported by Yahoo News, French President Jacques Chirac has proposed a scheme for a global tax to raise US$50 billion to "fight poverty" in the Third World.

Collecting a global tax implies a global authority to regulate said tax. Said global authority would become a global tyranny. To quote the famous line from Lord Acton: "Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely."

Taxing people's income to fight poverty will not work. De-centralizing their economic and political structure, along with moral and ethical re-generation will. It will not cure poverty for good, for Our Lord Jesus told us that "The poor you will always have with you." But we can help to alleviate their misery by taking such steps.

Chirac is a Euro-Socialist and a globalist. He believes in and loves Socialism and globalism. So do those who have done this report for a so-called "global anti-poverty tax". In the end, it will make the Third World's problems worse.

Distributism will make it better. It won't cure it, but it will make it better.
