    1.) I know it for a fact. I used to live in one of the largest industrial heartlands in South America. Nearly all multinational companies were legally exempt from tax and heavily subsidized by the state (otherwise they'd have moved their business elsewhere).

    2.) To use a western example, the UK (which is stricter than the US):

    Firms' secret tax avoidance schemes cost UK billions | Business | The Guardian

    3.)Likewise if we are going to talk about income tax, how about the fact that most government spending directly (subsidies, subcontracting, "bailouts" in time of crisis) or indirectly (infrastructure, wars, subsidizing of wages through welfare) benefits the capitalist class?

    Aaaand finally: Sorry but if you're trying to argue that the fact that 10% of people own 85% of the world's worth is counterbalanced by the amount of income tax, I have to ask, are you being serious? :s

    Do you really think that they created 85% of the world's wealth? Do you really think that even "after tax" (in the cases that do pay any substantial amount) they are still not earning millions times more than they contributed economically?

    Let's not engage in pedantry, please.

    I love being an intuitive in a sensing world! I have powers that the others don't have, that makes me feel like I'm some kind of superhero.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    How could that be? You're intuitive, living in an S world!

    Me - I'm an S living (sort of) in an N world. I don't even exist the same way that those people do. It's not fun.

    It is a prevalent issue. Working from home seems to be gaining a lot more social acceptance but there are many who have jobs where this is not a viable option.

    There are extremes in both cases, and they are the outlier here. Most people have a measure of both and are able to relate with the general population.
    Of course you are right. However, there is significantly better interpersonal chemistry on average between Ns and between Ss when communicating with each other.
