9. Taxes

Taxes are a part of a socioeconomic system that theoretically ensures all are taken care of in our society. In a system based upon competition however, inevitably the most ruthless and corrupt will gain the most, at the expense of the kind, poor and vulnerable.

We can assure that society’s needs are amply met in a Resource Based Economy because we have firstly reached a state of abundance, not scarcity, and secondly because that is what we aspire to as a society of civilised people.
