Globalists Unveil Socialist-backed New World Tax Regime

As various tax-funded international institutions explicitly outline plans to plunder humanity’s wealth to prop up governments drowning in odious debts, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) last week officially unveiled a new socialist-backed plot to create a global tax information-sharing regime to ensure that nobody except the establishment escapes the upcoming fleecing. Under the proposed scheme, admittedly inspired by “FATCA,” the Obama administration’s latest addition to the sprawling U.S. tax regime, governments and dictatorships worldwide will automatically share all private financial data on citizens with each other to extract as much wealth as possible from the public.

Calling its scheme to put the final nail in the coffin for financial privacy “game changing,” the tax-funded OECD said it would require governments to collect massive amounts of sensitive personal information on individuals from banks and other financial institutions in their jurisdictions. Once gathered, the vast troves of private data would be automatically exchanged between all participating governments and dictatorships. “You collect the data, you put it in the pipe and it goes to the other party,” said OECD tax policy boss Pascal Saint-Amans, who pays no taxes on his bloated tax-funded salary.

Over 40 governments, which the Paris-based OECD misleadingly refers to as “countries,” have already committed to adopt the controversial scheme. In a “joint statement,” participating governments celebrated the plot, which they believe will help extract more revenue from the public. “Tax evasion is a global problem and requires a global solution,” said representatives from dozens of governments, including more than a few run by self-described socialists. “We therefore strongly support the development of the single global standard for automatic exchange of information between tax authorities.”

Though business sits on $500 billion, workers’ salaries are under seige

Now that we’ve discarded our garbage workers by the side of the road, I guess we can all feel better.

The lime green private garbage trucks rolling through the western half of the city allow us to send a powerful message to all public sector workers: in these tough economic times, don’t expect to enjoy niceties like job security.

Mayor Rob Ford’s determination to privatize Toronto’s garbage service — even though the real savings are likely to be minimal — suggests the actual goal isn’t saving the public money, but attacking unions.

This would certainly fit with the anti-union ferocity on display since the Harper government won its majority last year, and the McGuinty government’s apparent keenness for a showdown with teachers and college faculty.

Mayor Ford and his sidekick brother Doug like to denigrate “jobs for life.” As Doug put it: “We’re going to target ‘jobs for life’ whenever we can, because nobody should have a job for life.”

Hold on there, Ford brothers. Why such venom at the notion of a “job for life”?

Don’t we want to encourage people to work all their lives? That used to be considered part of the work ethic. It’s not as if anyone is seeking “welfare for life.”

Employees can always be fired for just cause. The point of job security — a key right won by unions — is to give employees security against arbitrary firing.

But removing that sort of security — leaving workers fearful and therefore malleable to the demands of their employers — has been a central aim of the right and segments of the business community.

Perhaps the attack on unions isn’t surprising, given the ongoing recession caused by the 2008 financial crash. Better to turn the 99 per cent against each other — union against non-union, private sector against public sector — rather than allow that anger to boil up against the 1 per cent.

It’s reminiscent of the tale about the capitalist and the worker who order a pizza together. When the pizza arrives, the capitalist reaches in and helps himself to eleven of the twelve slices, then whispers in the ear of the worker: “Watch out for that union guy over there. He’s got his eye on your slice.”

As long as the right can keep workers envious and suspicious of each other, the focus won’t be on those at the top, where the benefits have actually gone. As Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney noted last week, corporations are sitting on $500 billion in cash, reflecting the growing share of business revenue in recent years that has gone to profits, not wages.

(Labour’s share of Canada’s national income has fallen from 65 to 60 per cent since 1990, partly because of policies like privatization and deregulation, the OECD’s Employment Outlook reported last month.)

And so a photo of a napping TTC collector was used in 2010 for an Internet campaign against unionized workers. After the humiliating public attacks, the worker, who had a flawless 29-year TTC record (including saving the life of a disabled man), took a medical leave and died ten months later.
