What we should be demanding from our Governments after the Coronavirus

Here is a list of things I think we should be demanding from our Governments after the Coronavirus.

1 Decriminalize Cash

If Governments do have the power to lock us down, imagine what would happen if you are in that situation and your bank collapses, or the Government wants to restrict your financial transaction.

This idea that cash facilitates drug trafficking and terrorists is rubbish, the sole aim of anti-cash legislation is to screw you out of every last bit of taxation they can.

If they are worried about drug dealers and terrorists, start policing it better, stop giving them bail and early release from prison. Secure the borders in a meaningful fashion, screen immigrants properly, if the government can’t do that they have no hope of protecting us from an invisible virus.

2 Contributions to Global Organizations

I would like to see each party and intended national leader be required to list their intended contribution to global organizations like WHO, UN, IMF and World Bank.

That number should bind the leader of the country completely, without exception to limit the Government to the amount as stated to voters prior to the election.

This should cover foreign aid, special circumstances and disaster relief.

The burden of these various global bodies is becoming substantial and unwarranted, they are useless, expensive indulgences of politically correct nonsense.

3 Immigration

I would like to see each party and intended national leader be required to list their intended immigration quotas in detail with specific numbers.

4 Accountability

After decades of high taxation countries like Italy, States like New York ended up with no money to look after their own pensioners (the people who paid those taxes), how is that even possible?

People deserve a better, plain English version of exactly where taxation is spent on a monthly basis.

5 Moratorium on Foreign Ownership

With the severe belting people are facing in economic terms it would be wise to allow a period for the economy to settle, the Coronavirus and the lockdowns hit people in different ways and there will be a massive redistribution of wealth.

A halt to foreign ownership would allow that redistribution to occur with in the economy, within the citizenry and not be assets lost to foreign owners.

6 Securitization of Water, Food, Health Care and Energy

The need for government is really limited and what they should be doing they fail at, and fail tremendously.

Water, Food, Health Care and Energy are key things that the government should be focused on providing security over.
