I am also seeing now that "tax evasion" has about 7 million results in google, while "progressive tax" only has about 460 000 results.

The central text: "One World, One Internet, One Democracy For All", doesn't have anything to do with the text in the arrows surrounding the globe. It is just supposed to mean that since we have an Internet that connects the entire world together, we should have a world democracy for all of us.

The text in the arrows surrounding the globe contains the most important elements in my ideology. Technically, people could vote for a different ideology in a world democracy, but I think those elements are so important, that I hope the global population will vote for an ideology which contains those elements.

Ah, okay.

Also, one government for one world,w ith one tax regime would end tax evasion quasi-automagically. At least the glaringly obvious tax holes which are used for things like the double-irish-dutch sandwich....


And I am not concerned "more" about one or the other, they form one linked concept, and both need to be tackled for taxation fairness.
Therefore we need progressive taxation, as strong shoulders can and should carry more, as well as no tax evasion as both together form taxation fairness.
Having a good progressive taxation will not work if some are able to evade taxation; and blocking tax-evasion will improve cause grumbling about unfair or lacking progressive taxation.

Hmm, I do think eliminating tax evasion is slightly more important. Because then you play by the rules, and block "selecting the rules"...

And I do like taxes. Pays for necessities I use like roads.
