Re: The Taboo subject: TAXES ¶
This is not the time or place to disseminate extremist views on the fundamentals of taxation. Even if you believe that taxation is theft, every citizen of Asgardia will be a voluntary citizen retaining additional citizenship with a terrestrial nation to which to return to.
If there are to be taxes, they will have been voted on and approved by the citizens of Asgardia, including each and every one of you. You can accept the democratic process or you can choose to rescind your citizenship. This is not a choice other nations can offer.
Conventional currency systems may well be obsolete on the space station. There is no value in beginning a long ideological combat between voluntaryism and pragmatism before the first satellite is even up, much less our future home.
