If those funds collected would be transparently dealt with and regulated, both in the sense of actual amounts collected and where it's spent, up to
the last cent (or closest in practical terms), I would very much be up for it. It's not the idea in itself, it's the lack of accountability
permeating the whole global economy which lowers the validity of the proposal.
Whoever is afraid of losing sovereignty of a nation, it's too late, as absolute sovereignty has been lost a long time ago... We should concentrate on
fairness and helping prosper the species potential living in this planet as a whole.
Forget about national boundaries, the only thing they accomplish is creating a reciprocal "them" vs "us", which only benefits the rich and
powerful. Not even the middle class. Unless of course, you have stakes in your favorite mining/oil/tech company exploiting other people's misery to
keep your profit margins unfairly disproportionate. That's alright anyway, if only for the short term gain.
Expect to pay back later though, as life doesn't forget, and just like pendulum oscillations, it's bound to get back at you. The further it's
pushed forth, the fastest it comes back...
