My editorial from The Bolt Report
Fairness would mean that every individual pays exactly the same percentage of their income in tax.
Fairness would mean that all companies pay exactly the same percentage of their profits in tax.
Fairness would mean that everyone is treated exactly the same before the law, regardless of their wealth, celebrity, race, ethnicity, religion, sex, or personal beliefs.
Fairness would mean that everyone is free to improve themselves and their situation within the community.
Fairness would mean that everyone is free to enjoy the fruits of their labours.
Fairness would mean that everybody could speak their mind without fear.
Fairness would mean being personally responsible and accountable.
Fairness would mean that those who are genuinely unable to look after themselves receive genuine help.
Achieving all of the above would throw many tens of thousands of public servants and lawyers out of work.
And marriage gives children an unfair advantage over kids born to single mums.
It is not fair that Baby Boomers are retiring at a time when the government coffers are empty, after working, paying taxes, and watching the wealth of our country grow to record levels … just before the ‘best treasurer’ in the world blew the lot.
