  • Employment is slavery

    Found a cool quote in the comment section of a blog that will motivate me for some time to stay self-employed. Though it’s no box of chocolates either. Here it goes: Employment is slavery! In the really important years of my life I do not want to let others tell me when to get out […]

  • Paying taxes by work time

    Currently, the state seeks only money from his citizens to perform its tasks. Which means that people who cannot pay money are a burden for the state. This would change radically if people are also able to pay their taxes by their work time. Or even better, if this is the default case. For example, […]

As you cannot decide for what your country will use the taxes you pay, and as money is a quantity, individual money paid does not retain its “individuality”. Meaning you pay a part of all your country’s expenses. And as for […]

  • A new system for social security

    In today’s modern societies, social insurances do not work any longer as they are simple too costly, i.e. inefficient. This new system is intended to solve that. The basic idea is to no longer have the whole society as the solidarity community, but a subgroup of people who made contributions of their time, some money, […]
