Why is this "bad"?

These companies are keeping their money from corrupt governments (governments can only seek funding through force--taxes--or voluntary donation).

The more businesses and individuals dodging taxes the better (that means less resources going to the state).

If anything, journalists exposing these panama papers and the practices businesses use to evade taxation, are just giving individuals like myself the ability to follow step-by-step.

Thanks for that.

And goodbye taxes.

Nothing. But, why don't they go live where their money is?


Why do you have any authority over where I live?

I'm not saying that the government and the banks aren't evil. But what happens when you run away from evil? It just. Gets. Stronger.



What in the world do you think taxation is??

Governments have to fund themselves with taxes, without taxes government can't do anything.

Wanna get rid of evil? Stop paying taxes.

I think I posed a question, not a statement.

Not necessarily. Many governments around the world own parts or all of their natural resources and the industries that exploit them. For example, many of the world's petroleum/natural gas companies are co-owned by their respective governments. Same goes with many of the African mineral companies/partnerships.

Many countries do this to a degree and use the proceeds to help fund their budgets. And that doesn't even include the countries that completely nationalize their resources or nationalize specific industries.

Of course. In fact, I wish your kind would go far,far,far, away.
