Norway Implements Voluntary Tax & Brings In Just $1,325 – THIS Is Why

Josh Sigurdson sits down with author and economic analyst John Sneisen to talk about a recent hilarious development out of Norway. Despite Norway being one of the most taxed nations in the world, the government implemented a voluntary tax in case citizens want to pay more to the government. The tax brought in just $1,325.
While voluntary pools or “taxation” can be an excellent idea when there are no mandatory taxes, a voluntary tax on top of out of control state extortion is nothing less than insane!
John Sneisen who is Norwegian breaks down the facts and translates some local Norwegian articles to provide further context which no one else is talking about.
Norway’s centrally planned, manipulated, indebted system is destructive and needs to be called out. With taxes on assets, toll roads, attempts to tax trucks off the road, the destruction of small businesses and UN protocols running rampant, Norway is quickly headed the way of all dramatically socialist societies, a massive crash.

    The only good part about taxes is the government is so inefficient we never get all the government we pay for, but what we get is already too much.

    if people would pay voluntarily and could forgive and forget about how we’ve been taxed by requirement – then people would support their government voluntarily most likely, just like, the same way people buy into Ethereum ICO’s where millions are raised in seconds even, and minutes with others.

    *The amount of new taxes in Ireland also is overloading it’s native citizens…having to pay for mass immigration of so-called “refugees” from the Middle East and Africa who get free houses, education, welfare, medical treatment etc must be paid by the Irish people.*

    I don’t mind supporting the services we get in Canada, the problem is our government is out of control in their spendings. Put 15% tax when we make purchases and leave it there, no tax on our pay checks, it will be well enough to provide everything we have now. Or only take 15% off our paycheck and no HST bullcrap. Put intelligent people in the government. Why put up 5 stupid Canadian flags in a park when one is enough? for example. We know where we live. Put people who are living in the same reality as all citizens, not psychopaths who’s head has blown up in pride.


    I’m in Norway, in a small town where the property taxes are very high. But they can still make them higher. Many services here are very bad, some ok, some are very good, so to me it seems the money is badly managed. Time to move soon? Away from Norway perhaps… Effective pay (vs inflation) for most people has been cut, cut and cut over the last years, meanwhile politicians have made sure that their pay increases every year. They fool most people to think they are not getting any higher pay increases by citing a 2.4% increase number, but they “forget” to mention that only a small, tiny proportion of actual workers with very low pay get as much as 2.4% per year, most people get between 0 and 2% and rarely year after year, so in average about 0.5 to 1% maybe.
