There’s a lot at steak.
I’ve said it many times and I’ll keep saying it: The government won’t stop with the carbon tax.
Using the ‘justification’ of climate change, the global elites are going to keep piling up the regulations and taxes on the People, taking more of our money and demanding more control over our lives.
Every time they introduce something new like the carbon tax, they quickly say that it’s ‘not enough,’ and plan new measures and higher taxes, which are also ‘never enough’ and leads to even more taxes.
So, it’s no surprise to see increasing discussion of a ‘meat tax.’
Here’s what CBC wrote it about last year:
“The steep climb in global meat consumption has environmental interest groups debating a “sin” tax on animal products.
Meat consumption grew by more than five times between 1992 and 2016 and has contributed to greenhouse gas emissions, global obesity, rising rates of diabetes and cancer, soil degradation and deforestation, according to the Farm Animal Investment Risk & Return (FAIRR) Initiative.
The British activist group argues meat should join products like tobacco, sugar and carbon, which are often taxed because they are harmful to people’s health and the environment.
“We’ve seen an increasing trend toward intervention, especially in Europe, this idea of looking at sin taxes,” said Lauren Compere, managing director at Boston Common Asset Management, an environmentally minded investment group. She listed Denmark, Sweden and Germany as countries considering legislation toward a meat tax.”
Eating meat is a ‘sin’ all of a sudden?
How does that make any sense?
Humans are meant to eat meat, and to compare meat to things like cigarettes is the height of absurdity.
Unfortunately, that isn’t stopping the control-obsessed elites from laying the groundwork for a meat tax, launching trial-balloons to get people ‘used’ to the concept.
Just look up ‘Meat Tax’ on Google, and you can see how the far-left and elites are trying to push the idea more and more.
It’s what they did with the carbon tax. First they throw the idea out there, then got people used to hearing about it, then forced it through against the wishes of the population, and now try to make it seem like the ‘status quo.’
That’s the same thing that will happen with a ‘meat tax,’ unless we stand up now and oppose it.
The government should be focused on national defence, infrastructure, and delivering services, not slamming us with new taxes and telling us what we can eat.
