Labour Leader’s Economic Advisor: It’s Not Your Money, It’s the Government’s Money

As noted previously, the new leader of Britain’s Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn is cut of the same cloth as Bernie Sanders — that is to say, he is a commie. Corbyn’s chief economic advisor is Richard Murphy. Here is what Murphy has to say about the property rights of British subjects:

[Murphy has] claimed taxpayers’ money was NOT their own – and was instead the state’s “rightful property”.

Murphy said: “I would suggest that we don’t as such pay taxes. The funds that they represent are, I suggest, in fact the property of the state.

“After all, if we give the state the power to define what we can own, how we can own it and, to a very large degree, what we can do with it – and we do – then I would argue that we also give the state the right to say that some part of what we earn or own is actually its rightful property and that we have no choice but pay that tax owed as the quid pro quo of the benefit we enjoy from living in community.

Murphy went on: “Well let me inform you that there is no such thing as ‘taxpayers’ money’: it is the government’s money to do what it will with in accordance with the mandate it has been given and for which it will have to account.”

He’s right of course. Slaves cannot own property. Any wealth they generate beneath the lash belongs to their owners. Our owners are the State, until such a time as we throw it off our backs.

…and progressivism is communism by increments.

    There’s no law requiring you to work. Stop working. Stop earning. The government can’t take what you don’t have.

    Let’s see how long the “government’s money” lasts…

    want to bet that the average brit has no idea that THIS is what their elected officials are thinking any more than the USA peoples know… but one day, that last wall of the fence around the corn that traps the hogs will close them in.

    This highlights the key difference between the Pro-Liberty right and the #NationalSocialistLeft.

    We on the Pro-Liberty right advocate individual rights – said rights grounded the right to Property – be it, Land, Possessions, and earnings.

    The proto-tyrants on the #NationalSocialistLeft. believe in ‘Collective’ rights, with property collectively owned. How else can wealth redistribution be said to be moral?

    Individual rights means you have the #CommonsenseCivilRightofArmedSelfDefense.

    Collective rights means your only value is that how which you are useful to the collective.

    There will be. When there is no private property all subjects are slaves to the state. The slaves will work at what they are told for the wages that the state chooses to pay. This is what they fought Hitler for?
