Practically, where people get the framework from is a detail. But it has to exist.

I personally think the UK and Western Europe will collapse if they totally lose touch with Christianity though... I've thought about that a lot.

Not sure about the USA. twitter.com/robertoblake/statu …

A free society requires a populace that is disciplined and respects that freedom comes with an inherent responsibility not to take it too far. As discipline breaks down, laws and government move in to take on a greater role in maintaining order.

You can abide by the laws and still have a degenerate, dysfunctional, depressed, unhealthy society...

Societies need more than laws. Individually and collectively. twitter.com/Hazween_Syarina/st …

Not at all.

'Freedom' without a framework is why the West has massive problems with broken families, failed marriages, fatherless homes, drug addiction, alcoholism, etc. and all the serious ramifications that result from that.

It's not as simple as just 'respecting property.' twitter.com/hamster_ai/status/ …

The lack of financial education in schools should be a national emergency.

Freedom is great. I'm pro freedom!

But 'freedom' alone is not the core value ALL societies and nations are based around.

Some value cohesion, safety, family, religious adherence, stability, etc. above freedom.

If you understand this, you'll understand the whole world better.

5% purchase tax now, Zuby. I live in KSA, and most of what you say is still correct. It isn’t what people think it is. It is the most family centred society I have ever seen.

It's a totally different system there in many ways. If you're used to the American or European model, it may take time to get your head around it. Both economically and culturally.

It's an interesting place though. I legit think both sides of the world can learn from each other.

The Saudi government owns oil and natural gas companies including Aramco, which is the most profitable company in the entire world, market cap $2 trillion+

Profits are used to pay for
- universal healthcare
- education
- infrastructure
etc.

There are no taxes on citizens. twitter.com/dandude2/status/12 …

In fact, I'll try to get someone from Saudi Arabia on my podcast because people are incredibly clueless about the country as a whole.

Would that interest you?

I grew up in a country with 0% income tax, 0% sales tax AND free healthcare at the point of service...

I thought that was normal until I came to the West.

So this may inform some of my views on taxation.

Imagine paying billions of dollars in taxes over your lifetime and paying the salaries of thousands of people...

Just to have dusty politicians and people on the internet tell you that you haven't paid your 'fair share'...

My political views and social views are very different. This seems to confuse a lot of people...

There is some overlap, but they're not the same thing.

Billionaires pay more in taxes in a single year than 99.9% of people do in their entire lifetimes...

Who is really being 'greedy' here?

'Fair share' is a nebulous concept. twitter.com/AnwarAdushe/status …
