When you suppress consumption through taxation, people produce more and consume less. This means the civilization become wealthier. If you are making more than you are using, you are becoming wealthier.

Income greater than outgo means BIGGER. Outgo greater than income means SMALLER. Production greater than consumption means MORE. Consumption greater than production means SCARCITY.

Do these AXIOMS of physical reality REALLY need to even be explained? Apparently they do, for Keynesian economists; fiat currency central bankers; mainstream media propagandists; CFR-infested globalists; corporate fascist-cultural Marxists foaming at the mouth for the welfare-warfare state and ignorant, public school-educated citizens simply do not get it.

In order to create a PRODUCTION society to replace the current central bank-instigated CONSUMER society, we should define the total amount the citizen pays for all government services.

WE MUST DETERMINE AS A NATION WHAT PERCENTAGE OF OUR MONEY WE ARE WILLING TO ALLOCATE FOR GOVERNMENT SERVICES.

WE THE PEOPLE PRESENT A LUMP SUM BUDGET TO CONGRESS AND THEY TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT.

But how in Earth do we do that? What is our criterion and starting point for such a lump sum allocation?

I propose a rationale that has not yet been considered. This rationale will require that we take a fresh look at two institutions that dominate current civilization: THE CHURCH and THE STATE.
