The protests in France have reportedly spread at home and overseas. The reference source below lists 42 “Demands of the Yellow Vest Movement.” There are many of these demands acceptable to us. One of them is the 6th demand: Big businesses should pay big taxes & small businesses pay small ones.
This is very good. Taking the earth environment into consideration, however, I think it would be better to decrease tax rate on farmers who use natural farming methods and increase taxes on corporations such as Monsanto that create products apparently harmful to the earth environment. To carry it out, I think that each local government needs to have an independent organization to make a correct assessment on which corporation creates environment-friendly good products. Such good-quality products should be imposed no tariff in free trade.
Furthermore, tax should be as simple as possible to avoid illegal activity.
The 29th demand says that with regard to the prices of natural gas and electricity, “we demand the re-nationalization of these industries and the lowering of prices.” I think that infrastructure such as electricity, gas and water, which is essential for humans to live and to which competition principle cannot be applied, should be government-managed. Everybody must think that it is wrong to privatize the police, the fire department and the military. If so, we should think that privatization of banking service which creates money equivalent to blood in economy is wrong in itself. I think that banks should stop loaning money with compound interest because banks, if public institutions, can loan money without interest.
Interestingly, in a nation such as Venezuela, whose economy has been completely collapsed, people can trade by the barter system. I believe that advanced barter system will be achieved on Earth in the future and we will see the world where no money is needed. In a word, I feel that a nation where economy has collapsed and the world where economy has reached the maximum height resemble each other.
In the current society where we live, only some people who create money and arbitrarily distribute it have enormous power. Such society is of a problem.
