The Power To Tax Globally… « LewRockwell.com Blog
It seems that the United Nations’ World Health Organization has just published a new “study” that proposes a global tax on certain consumer products to help pay for the One World Government/New World Order agenda. Oops, I mean:
“The following fund-raising options have been put forward on the basis of the likelihood that they can generate new funds for health research and development [emphasis mine] in a sustainable way.” [“...for health research and development...” How “caring” of the New World Order monsters.]
Here is a telling excerpt (page 46 of the document/page 57 of the pdf):
5.3.1 A new indirect tax
Indirect taxes are small taxes imposed on specified products or transactions. Typically, the tax is paid by the consumer or user of the product or transaction, collected by the retailer and forwarded to the taxation authority. Once in place, they are compulsory. The objective is to raise revenue or, in the cases of taxes on arms and excise duties on tobacco and alcohol, to discourage (excess) consumption of a particular product. [Can you say, "Taxes on soda, candy, and fast food"?] In the latter cases, there are likely to be positive effects in terms of health. Taxes such as those for airline travel can contribute to addressing communicable diseases. All these, and others such as a digital tax, can be considered humanitarian contributions which can together provide significant resources for the health needs of the world. The digital tax involves a charge on traffic over the Internet. It was first discussed in the 1990s, and various proponents have suggested different versions. Examples include a tax of 1 US cent on every 100 e-mails of 10 KB sent, a charge per number of e-mail messages (e.g. 10 cents per 1000 messages).
Today, the proposed global taxes are for health research and development. Tomorrow, the proposed global taxes will be for a global army.
