And, no, this one isn't about eating babies either (unless you realize that you're the baby on the platter).
Here's the premise. Rich people don't pay taxes so why should ordinary Canadians pay taxes? Remember the KPMG scandal from last September? We let those guys and their accountants off the hook. It was all settled with a handshake and a nod. Nobody went to jail but that's because those folks are different than us folks.
Now we've got the Panama Papers scandal that shows that Western democracy has, under the corruptive weight of neoliberalism, decayed into illiberal democracy that, today, borders on outright oligarchy.
It sounds to me that maybe it's a good time to see if there's a consensus on the rest of us paying taxes when the rich won't while our governments turn a blind eye. Now ask yourself this. Who do you think your government would first sling into jail - you, or them? Hint: don't put your money on "them." You would find yourself in the Greybar Hotel so fast your head would still be spinning.
That's always the problem with illiberal democracy. The ballot box offers no solutions.
