Today was tax filing day in the Tonewah house. Unwillingly sacrificed were the hard-earned wages to the gaping maw of the beast. "Oh, but Tonewah, just happily do your part... it's for the greater good."

Greater good my brown eye.

The individual is so much more important than the collective. Collectively, we are merely the sum of our parts. A collective can't even exist without the individual. Why, then, do we constantly sacrifice, willingly or unwillingly, for the collective?

It makes no sense. No matter how you turn it and try to create a facet of logic, you will fail. You have to look at the motives of those who would force you to sacrifice for the collective. Then, you'll see clearly that it doesn't benefit ALL the individuals in the collective, just a few.

Just a rich, powerful, few.  

"Oh, but welfare, Tonewah... they're taking our money and giving it to people who don't work." That's a just a few scraps tossed out to people with which to buy their support. As a percent of spending, welfare to individuals for food and other needs is fairly small.

Corporate welfare is another story, though. Corporate welfare is how the fat cats get fatter. Fascism by any other name is still the same. And this ole boy just got robbed by the fascists.
