Social Security

The pyramid scheme inherent in social security—literally robbing Peter to pay Paul—has run its course.

Founded as a thinly veiled tax with the ultimately unsustainable promise of augmenting the retirement funds of the elderly, social security has already begun to stop working as an economic scheme, despite more workers than ever tithing unholy percentages into an ante no one credibly expects to reclaim in his autumnal years.

Two things have to happen. Social security has to be identified as the purposeless tax that it is; and that tax has to be abolished before anyone else pays into this unfair extortion of income.

In calling the social security tax a tax, Cthulhu will bring its pointless existence to an end in the process of abolishing the IRS in favour of a simple, fair, national sales tax imposed upon the sale of qualifying goods and services.
