If you want to design a better system, the idea of scarcity and allocation of that scarcity needs to be dealt with. Capitalism isn't great and it
has major problems but it is the best system of dealing with scarcity and allocating resources.
The basics aren't scarce.
Free energy is all around us and is more than abundant all over the planet.
Free energy would go far towards making the 20 hour work week a reality.
There will always be people who are willing to work smarter or better than thier neighbor. Such people would be rewarded for thier efforts by being
able to purchase improved services and products that many, who were happy with the basics, would not be able to.
What is the purpose of paying taxes into a system that refuses to operate by it's own rules?
Eliminate taxes - Taxes are an outdated concept that have no bearing on reality. The reality is that government can operate perfectly well without
spending what it collects. America has been doing it for almost 100 years now.
Eliminating taxes would do wonders for improving economic growth.
What they (Those who live off of taxes) fear is that they will no longer be able to live off of a system that collects zero revenue. This is incorrect
becuase as long as they have something of value to offer to the people, or even if they don't, the system will continue to operate and provide them
with the basics.
They would be able to earn more based upon thier willingness to work harder and smarter just like the rest of us.
Effort = reward
