Sermon

FEBRUARY 01, 1958 by MALLORY CROSS JOHNSON

Mrs. Johnson and her husband, formerly of the Foundation staff, continue their study of freedom from Malaga, Spain.

What is war but death and taxes?
How will killing make men free?
Good will never come from evil;
As the seed, so grows the tree.

Taxes sap the life away from
Every source of future wealth,
Thrift and honesty discourage —
How can sickness bring us health?

Nor can bombing draw together
Men in friendship in the way
Voluntary operations
Draw men closer every day.

If you burn to fight for freedom
Know the source wherein it lies:
By respecting every person
Each will help the other rise.

The United States' corporate tax burden is the highest in the world, but innovators will always find a way to duck away from Uncle Sam's reach. Doug Bandow explains how those with the means are renouncing their citizenship in increasing numbers, while J. Dayne Girard describes the innovative use of freeports to shield wealth from the myriad taxes and duties imposed on it as it moves around the world. Of course the politicians brand all of these people unpatriotic, hoping you won't think too hard about the difference between the usual crony-capitalist suspects and the global creative elite that have done so much to improve our lives. In a special tech section, Joseph Diedrich, Thomas Bogle, and Matthew McCaffrey look at various ways these innovators add value to our lives--even in ways they probably never expected.
