One thought on “Making our tax system fair for the poor

  1. Bernard Edwards

    Well done, Bishop Pat. The taxation system is the source of income for the government. In a socially just society the taxation must fall most heavily on those who are able to benefit most from the society’s common resources and those whom history has placed in favourable positions for the procurement of a larger share of the resources of the society.
    People are not equal nor do they necessarily have to be. But every person should have sufficient access to the resources of a society to enable them to develop as much as they can. Each person should be able to develop to a point where they are capable of being the person that ehir creator intended them to be.
    Like Pat, I believe that the taxation system is the main way in which the government ought to ensure that each person is able to accomplish an adequate and appropriate level of development.
