The Tax Revolt

In the realm of economics, hidden taxes are considered the worst taxes, as they corrupt the relationship between the parties in a transaction. The hidden tax adds a third party to the transaction, which clouds the true cost from buyer and seller. This secret partner to the transaction is often the government. Fees in the supply chain, like energy taxes, for example, show up in the cost of the product or service, but they are not disclosed, so the true cost is hidden from both the seller and buyer in many cases.

In the social realm, there are hidden taxes that are not really hidden, as they are experienced every day, but no one thinks of them as taxes. For example, people living in Lagos on the Chesapeake are well aware of the tax. This is the daily cost of insulating yourself from crime and mayhem. It may be a direct tax like alarm systems or bars on the windows. It can also be an indirect tax, like the two hour commute from one part of the suburbs to another. Time is just another form of money.

There is also an emotional cost that comes with living around so much vibrancy. When you live in a place like Lagos, around the tax, you can never relax. Life in diverse areas is a constant struggle between two species that were never meant to occupy the same ecosystem. The fragile peace is a source of stress, because it is so fragile. You know that the cost of that peace is tolerating the endless inconveniences. The pale face just assumes maintaining the peace is his burden alone.

It is not just the anxiety of living in constant danger. The tax shows up in a million little ways in your daily life. If you go into a lunch place in certain parts of town, you can expect to see a local struggling to order from the menu. The inculcated sense of entitlement means they will waste time ordering odd things that slow up the whole process for everyone. In the grocery store, shoppers will pick checkout lines, based on the assumed tax in each option. Everyone tries to be a tax dodger.

Like real taxes, there is no way to avoid the tax. In a place like Lagos, it is everywhere and is just a part of the background radiation of the universe. One just learns to navigate around these burdens. You are only made aware of the tax when you go away to some tax haven and then return to Lagos. The most stressful day of vacation is the first day back. It’s like moving from black and white to color. For newcomers, the tax is not just disorienting, it can be terrifying, but then they acclimate.

Of course, the newest tax comes from open borders. Illegal immigration is fueled by the demand for cheap labor. All of those little brown guys riding leaf blowers are here because they are cheap. The price of the landscaping services may be lower, but the cost shows up in the emergency room or in the police blotter. This is a form of cost shifting that is, in effect, a hidden tax on the people using other services. The high cost of cheap labor is another hidden tax all of us are forced to pay.

The tax is not just a racial thing. The ultimate cause of the tax is Progressive whites, who are a tireless burden on everyone around them. When box wine auntie shows up for Thanksgiving dinner, everyone pays the price for tolerating her. The day is a little less enjoyable, a little less relaxed. In many cases, everyone is thankful that racist Uncle Bob did not strangle her at the table. Perhaps instead of thankful, everyone is disappointed. Again, everyone secretly wishes to be free of the tax.

That, of course, is the ultimate hidden tax. Every normal person has had to self-censor, hold their tongue around some Progressive goofball. Maybe it is at work, where fear of being canceled out of your job leads to self-censorship. Often, it is in daily life where everyone avoids certain topics around the liberal guy. Being polite, something that is supposed to be a gift you give to others, becomes another tax in your life. Every normal man has quietly thought about canceling the tax man in their life.

The tax is everywhere. Turn on the television to watch a sportsball game and you will be inundated with commercials for race mixing, homosexuals and girl power. What should be a few hours vegging out in front of the tube to watch men play a game, quickly turns into an aggravation that saps your strength. TV ratings have declined for sports, because for many normal people, the tax is now exceeding the benefit. Staring blankly at the wall is more relaxing than another lecture on girl power.

This is the massive hidden tax on normal people. The price of tolerating Progressive lunatics is the stress of crumbling community, the irritation of endless propaganda and the bitterness than comes with self-censorship. Everyone’s life is diminished because a small group of people impose a heavy tax burden on the rest of us. The rise of dissident politics is not a reaction to Progressive lunacy, so much as it is the result of carrying the hidden tax burden. Normal white men are tired of paying the damned tax.

White middle class people who work – have a massive tax burden to shoulder. But try having a conversation about that – and the typical response I’ll get , even from people who should know better – is to complain that if we went all libertarian on the issue we’d have no roads, schools , or military. They’re willing to put up with all manner of abuse – just so they can have some public schools to send their non replacement rate child off to – to get indoctrinated to hate them when zir grows up.

About 20 years ago I took my first real job out of college and moved to a state with an income tax other taxes. This was in the mid-West. After about half a year or so, I sat down and calculated every tax before and after my check and came up with an approximate number that 1/3 of my income before and after was gobbled by government (fed, state, local) and that is what I could visibly count. I would argue most Americans have been paying a 50% tax on their income for a long time now.

The solution to the problem – is EXACT OPPOSITE. We should be demanding to pay 80% LESS. Because that is what will remove the funding that creates all those problems you described.

You would think these cities would have the lowest numbers of progressives because it is impossible to not be aware of the ‘rules’ whites have to follow in them. One obvious example is the tax subsidized public transit. People would rather start their day sitting in miles of bumper to bumper traffic than to experience the diversity on the train. My city has an elevated line locally called ‘the el.’ Back when my parents were young, hundreds of thousands of people rode to work rather than drive.

Whiskey can speak for himself, but the endgame has got to be the restoration of patriarchy. Sadly, I see no way to do that, save a mass conversion to Islam (the subject of Michel Houellebecq’s novel, Submission) or another religion that defines sex roles along traditional lines. Otto von Bismarck stated the best role of women in society quite succinctly: Kueche, Kinder, Kirche (kitchen, children, church).

That way you see Mr. Gray won’t get discouraged in thinking the ladies might actually be worth a beta. A beta male even looking is an insult. It implies they have a chance . See Katherine Heigl vs Seth Rogan in Knocked Up. She could have let it ride for big sequels bucks but the movie insulted her sex market value.

Well said. Derbyshire can dream of his purported ‘ice-people’ alliance (i.e. his marriage writ large). Others of us recognize the vast gulf between Whites and others, even those others not as dysfunctional as Negroes. They’re still alien in culture and behavior and thought, and their cultural norms are not a comfortable fit for most Whites. You may not feel unsafe walking their streets at night, but the crowding, the constant competitiveness, and the lack of privacy and individuality is disquieting at best.

The biggest tax of all is the dread of falling under the power of people who hate your guts…the dread of being unmanned and humiliated by small minded POCs and their enablers. The struggle by millions of white men to stay ahead of the Progressive Tidal Wave is constant and debilitating. At the beginning of the 1980s I knew I had to figure out how to be self-employed with few or no employees, and stay in the six-figure realm. That would be true liberty, or at least as much of it as could reasonably be expected this day and age.

“The tax” has finally reached my work niche, a place that is rather rarefied and has many filters that are supposed to keep taxing sorts at bay. But filters or no, our ruling class business leaders and their commissars in HR have gone out of their way to stuff tax burdens in places where they would never occur naturally. These taxing folk are so taxing that not only have they increased the cost of getting _anything_ done, some things just are no longer do-able.

The tax burden in Corporate IT is insane. Between the Pajeet H-1Bs, the Women “analysts” who have problems even taking notes of meetings, let alone ‘analyzing’ anything, and the minority ‘managers’ who have been dilbert-principled up there, it’s an awful place to be.

I gotta get out. One project I’m working on has 6 people (3 of which are indentured pajeets) doing the actual work, and 8 ‘manager’ types, plus another 10 or so ‘adjunct’ people to the project who are there to evaulate ‘project risk’ and other crap

The death of the spirit tax: When a 5 year old enters kindergarten today he/she begins to pay the tax directly. An institution that used to try to identify and develop preferences and talents in the young now belittles and deconstructs them as members of institutional evil. Many come out of grade school already badly damaged. Middle school, high school and college complete the job. Add to that war against white children the Pozz that is youth culture and the loss in potential, in creativity, in know-how, in ambition, and in the will to be anything and do anything normal… Read more »

“An institution that used to try to identify and develop preferences and talents in the young now belittles and deconstructs them as members of institutional evil.” This is a insidious tax that isn’t talked about. In my youth, schools would actively seek out the bright kids and cater to their requirements. Mostly done in private schools, but done even in public schools, if to a lesser degree. But now, in our quest for enforced egalitarianism, these kids are left to their own devices. Taking good care of those kids is the cheapest and most reliable way to ensure a better… Read more »

Sometimes the tax is small in the form of an inconvenience sometimes not.

The re-election campaign of Kurt “Where there is Schmoke, there is Fire” and lower interest rates sent us out to the red zone northeast of Lagos. Vibrancy eventually followed, so we are now settled in deeper red, still to the northeast. The “tax” is relentless.

Nope. Jews, fancy Asians and White women don’t like the “tax.” They exhibit the same coping behaviors White men do. But they short-sightedly use the war on White men to try to grab themselves a bigger piece of the pie. They don’t actually want to live in a world without White men keeping the trains running.

Species differ in all sorts of ways, including behavior and abilities. They cannot live peacefully together.

I don’t know where you’re getting your information from Robert Sykes but it is 100% incorrect. Saying negroes and whites are different species is like saying poodles and beagles are different species. Negroes and whites are both human species but different races. There are four major known races : Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid and Australoid. Some consider Capoids (bushmen/Hottentots) a fifth but the jury is still out. Frankly I think they’re an offshoot of Negroid. I happen to study race but this is fundamental stuff and you can easily look it up. I suggest you do.

When they leave their jobs and go home to their wildly overpriced homes, they lock themselves in, even in the early evening. They watch some artsy-fartsy show on the tube while trapped in their own homes, smug in how progressive they are while living in constant abject terror of the diversity they claim to love.

That is what I love about this site (and why I support it) — Zman approaches everyday problems and frustrations from new and insightful angles., I had never thought about the major mayhem and petty annoyances imposed by progs as forms of tax — but they can definitely be seen that way. And resented all the more…

Agreed. My attention span for writers usually lasts a couple years or so, then I move on; mostly because they usually go through all their interesting ideas and have to start recycling them. Even the good ones like Mark Steyn and VDH have gotten repetitive to me and I rarely read them anymore. Not so with the Z-man (at least not yet…).

Keep up the great work!

This is a great essay. The play on the notion of ‘taxing’ really brings out many different aspects of why ethno-genetic nationalist sentiment continues to grow. Right now ‘conservatives’ want to focus on the governmental ‘taxation’ ethnos and the ‘taxing’ nature of the Progressive ethnos but are, generally, unwilling to yield anything to the genetic (racial) aspects of the problem. I think White Nationalists are, in general, focused on the genetic aspects of nationalism, but are willing to concede that there are some Whites that are race-traitors and do not deserve to be part of a White homeland. An ‘ethnically… Read more »

Don’t worry Z. The vibrancy is making its way into white suburbia. We pay for a grossly overpriced shoebox with exorbitant condo fees just for the privilege of living next to the wealthy. but alas all is not well in Mayberry ! The constant clanking of bulldozers and back up alarms means the obama housing on the next block is almost finished 🙁 Yes , the money people tried to dodge that bullet for a long time, but the Feds finally caught up with them and now the mandatory low income housing is here. The first victim will be the… Read more »

You have to change your focus from wanting to live by the wealthy to wanting to live amongst your own kind… Check out the Bitterroot Valley…

This may be the finest example of Z Man’s commentary I have ever read. The level of insight is stunning. I cannot rate it highly enough.

Z is projecting his own dislike of diversity onto other Whites. Less than 20 percent of whites are concerned about whites becoming a minority and the growth of vibrancy unless it is black vibrancy. Whites love diversity. Good whites are skilled at shielding themselves from the more vibrant vibrants and want to pay an even higher vibrancy financial tax because the ROI is so great for them. They gain status by being good whites and receive a great sense of moral and intellectual superiority over bad whites in return for their vibrant tax. Most bad whites, unlike good whites, actually… Read more »
