Billionaires, run for your rocket ships: the pitchforks are coming!
Governments are also having to address tax injustice more openly. They have always known there is money for public services - that it's just not being paid by the wealthiest. They've know they don't have to make cuts to healthcare, education, social programs, help for the poor, veterans services, and more. But seldom has the tax justice community sensed so clearly that the winds have shifted, and the charade will have to end.
Our governments have a clear choice. They can fix the problem that they’ve always known exists. Or they can let it continue, let inequality continue to grow, let most people struggle with inadequate working conditions, healthcare, education, and public services, while the fallouts of poverty such as racism and extremism seep deeper into our society, and as the world as we know it comes to an end in an avoidable climate catastrophe, right before our eyes.
