The United States “Celebrates” 100 Years Of The Income Tax

I originally had planned to write a voluminous post about this but I’m not going to.  Instead, I’m just going to link to a rather pointed and some might say conspiratorial perspective on the topic

I think it’s important that we all have an open mind and be willing to consider our nation has always been fascist.  Corporate Personhood, a substantial basis for fascism, has been with us in some form or another since our nation’s inception.  It was made law 150 years ago.  Big business has always controlled politicians in our nation.  As noted on here before, political bribery was legal for the first 80 years of our nation’s history.  And the passage of the Sixteenth Amendment in 1913 and the subsequent passage of the fascist Federal Reserve Act later that same year are no coincidence.  In order to have a private debt-based monetary system, there must be some form of contractual collateral.  And as has always been the case, the power of the state in collusion with elites figured out the easiest form of collateral is the binding of its citizens to that legal contract.  We are the contractual chattel used to back this fascist, debt-based, corporate slavery system.   So, while private, for-profit capital enriches itself and arbitrarily/undemocratically determines where investment and money are directed in our democracy, you are contractually-obligated to pay the bill for their decisions.  Most of which involve looting and your slavery rather than democracy or human development.   This is capitalism as it has always been practiced.  That is, the force of the state is used to enslave you to a system of corporate control.  Now, it doesn’t need to be that way but that is how it has always been.  Always.  And, when the colonies got too big for their britches and wanted to be their own capital, the King of England and his merry band of corporate capitalists responded with force.  Just as they are responding with force today.  So, we had the Revolutionary War. 

Now, I chafe at the conspiratorial comments about Jews running our banking system and secret families running our country.   These are conspiracy theories steeped in hatred and bigotry.  They serve a purpose of victimizing and exploiting innocent people as power always does.  This is the same bigotry and hatred that is the fundamental basis of Social Darwinism that elites in the U.S. and Britain found so attractive a century ago.  That rationalism was instrumental to the Robber Barons of that time.  That same bigotry and hatred was the rationalism that allowed slavery, indentured servitude and other forms of class slavery to exist throughout all of human history.  That includes our slavery today;  we are hired to do the elites laundry, be their nanny, be their gardeners, be their personal assistants, mow their laws, amuse them through working in entertainment, teach their children in private schools, work in their corporations and on and on and on.   And, the Social Darwinism movement in the U.S. and Britain was later picked up by Hitler and was the basis for his rationalism to murder millions of innocent people.   It’s the same boogeyman that is now directed to Muslims who are now the targeted hatred and bigotry that allows the ruling class to extend their insatiable desire for more.  And, anti-Semitism is again on the rise for the same hateful and bigoted reasons that are brought about by class and associated elitism.   It is the same hatred and bigotry that has turned you into a debt slave and corporate lab rat on a running wheel working your life away to get some small portion of the fruits of your labor in the corporate state.

There is no conspiracy theory to the events of 1913.  Just the same rampant corporate ownership of our politicians as is the case today.   We are all slaves to a system of institutionalized injustice.   And, it only exists through elitism, propaganda, fear and force.
