We should go back to the original funding for the National government as prescribed in the Constitution prior to the 16th amendment. In the 16th amendment the US government laid claim on all income – yes, it could confiscate 100% if it so desired (under FDR the top bracket rate was 93%): ” The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration.” The theft of labor is a crime that cries to heaven – this amendment has declared us to be serfs.
Prior to it the only income was from tariffs and fees, and that was because the founders intentionally wanted wanted to limit it’s funding. Of course, one way around it was to create a National bank, which is why we have an out of control government which is spending money created out of thin air because it cannot live off of the huge amount of income taxes it confiscates.
Violence can only be concealed by a lie, and the lie can only be maintained by violence.

In a higher phase of communist society, after the enslaving subordination of the individual to the division of labor, and therewith also the antithesis between mental and physical labor, has vanished; after labor has become not only a means of life but life’s prime want; after the productive forces have also increased with the all-around development of the individual, and all the springs of co-operative wealth flow more abundantly—only then can the narrow horizon of bourgeois right be crossed in its entirety and society inscribe on its banners: From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!
– Karl Marx
“However, they are called passions of ignominy because they are not worthy of being named, according to that passage in Ephesians (5:12): ‘For the things that are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.’ For if the sins of the flesh are commonly censurable because they lead man to that which is bestial in him, much more so is the sin against nature, by which man debases himself lower than even his animal nature.”
— St. Thomas Aquinas
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
– David Rockfeller, Memoirs
