A Crime Against Humanity

A ‘crime against humanity’ is an intentional injustice perpetrated by people in power in a society against a group of people, such as an ethnic group, or a religious group, or an entire nation — or all people on the planet. A crime against humanity is usually associated with acts of physical violence, but it can be any kind of serious ongoing injustice.

An unjust political process or an unjust economy is a crime against humanity. Any authoritarian political regime is a crime against humanity.

The existing economy is a crime against humanity. There are, at the least, two reasons why the existing economy is a crime against humanity: the existence of poverty is a crime against humanity and the destruction of the ecology of Earth is a crime against humanity. Some might say taxation is a crime against humanity, as well.

A solution for all of those crimes against humanity associated with the extant economy, including taxation, exists: “Same Economy, Way Better Outcomes for Society” (here in Medium).
