Our research concludes Canadian tax law deems paycheques as Canada’s property. That is why Canada income taxation is not theft.

Background – Philip Goff

Philip Goff is Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, Central European University

The article’s author, Philip Goff, teaches philosophy at Central European University (“CEU”) in Budapest, Hungary. CEU was started by George Soros. Hungary used to be under Communism. It is a civil law-based country, like most of Europe. Is that why Goff does not address how income taxation in common law-based countries conflicts with private property rights in those countries?

Goff: Against Income Taxation is an “Extreme Position

Goff starts by saying, “Some radical libertarians hold that all taxation is immoral, on the grounds that it amounts to the state stealing the money of private citizens. This is an extreme position …”

This is the Hungary secret police’s headquarters under Communism, dubbed the “Tower of Terror”. It is now a tourist attraction. Now, the most terrifying part is getting through the gift shop.

It is an “extreme position” only if you believe in Communism. (How did that work out for Hungary?) Then everything belongs to the state. However, Canada is not under Communism. It is also not under a civil law-based legal system (outside Quebec).

Common Law versus Income Taxation

Great Britain established the common law-based legal system. Later, British colonies adopted it. Biblical laws, including the Ten Commandments, form part of it. The eighth Commandments says, “You shall not steal”. In other words, God grants your right to private property ownership. Furthermore, Great Britain is not a Communist country. Therefore, a common law-based legal system’s fundamental purpose is protecting private property rights.

Susan Pace Hamill, Professor of Law and Honors Professor, University of Alabama

That is why Susan Hamill, an American lawyer and law professor, could not quote from the Bible to justify American income taxation. No wonder. As Bible theologian Gary North points out, there is nothing in the Bible supporting it.

Civil Law – Income Taxation Not Theft

Most of the rest of the world uses civil law based-legal systems. This started with Roman Law. Napoleon later adopted it for France (Napoleonic Law).

Caesar Commodus, as played by Joaquin Phoenix in the movie “Gladiator”.

Rome’s Caesars claimed they were Gods. So did Napoleon. This is why, under civil law, all your so-called rights are just privileges. Basically, such governments replace God. This allows them to grant you privileges. This also means they can take them away anytime. In contrast, your private property rights from God in a common law-based legal system are inalienable. In addition, under civil law, arguably your paycheque could belong to such governments.

Your God-given private property rights in a common-law based legal system are inalienable.

Jurisdiction Flows One Way

A legal maxim (legal truth) is, “The created cannot be greater than its Creator”.

Common Law

Under common law, the jurisdiction flow is: God > Human Beings > Common Law-based Governments > Legal persons, including private persons. This is why, for such legal systems, God’s rights are inalienable.

A legal maxim (legal truth) is, “The created cannot be greater than its Creator”.

Civil Law

In contrast, under civil law, the jurisdiction flow is: Civil Law-based Government > Legal Persons, including natural persons. That is why such legal systems can rescind privileges at anytime.

Private Property only for Private Persons

In Canada, private property rights are only available to a private person of full capacity.

Government Documents Confirm Private Property Rights

Canadian Bill of Rights

Canadian Bill of Rights by John Diefenbaker has enjoyment of property no property rights

The Canadian Bill of Rights recognizes enjoyment of private property.

The Canadian Bill of Rights states in Part 1, Section 1(a) that,

 It is hereby recognized and declared that in Canada there have existed and shall continue to exist without discrimination by reason of race, national origin, colour, religion or sex, the following human rights and fundamental freedoms, namely,

  • (a) the right of the individual to life, liberty, security of the person and enjoyment of property, and the right not to be deprived thereof except by due process of law;

The Canadian Scene (1957), is a study guide for immigrants becoming Canadians citizens. It lists one of the basic rights as Freedom of Private Property.

Canada’s Income Taxation Law

On July 1, 2017, Canada amended the Income Tax Act. Section 270 now says income belonging to any “governmental entity” (such as Canada’s “public money”) is distinguishable from income “inuring to the benefit of any private person”.

Obviously, Canada recognizes private property rights. Recall Apu’s Theory concludes Canadians’ paycheques are deemed to be Canada’s “public money”. That is how, and why, Canada income taxation is not theft.

Conclusion

George Soros, among the 30 richest people in the world.

George Soros started CEU. He is also a major proponent of globalisation through Agenda 21, which is against private property ownershipHe also told 60 Minutes that he does not believe in God. Philip Goff teaches at CEU “Liberty, Gobalisation, and Tax Justice“. Is all this just a coincidence?
