Laborism

We live under capitalism, where the accumulation of capital is encouraged by our tax laws at the expense of people who work. Capitalism puts profits before people. I suggest that is time to put people and their labor first, in what I call laborism. Opponents will call it socialism or communism or worse. People who work for a living, rather than exploiting other people through the accumulation of capital, should be paid for their labor sufficiently to live a good and decent life. Those who accumulate capital should receive some reward for their efforts, but the rewards of capital should be taxed more heavily than income earned by the sweat of one’s brow.
