Suppression of Viable Economies

Human rights violated: 3, 4, 17, 22, 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30

If producers are given fair value for their goods and services, they can continue to produce more than enough to support themselves and their families and build a strong community.

If taxation and inflation become too oppressive, the system begins to break down in a thousand ways.

If unemployment benefits exceed what the worker would be paid for returning to work, the remaining workers have to carry them as an additional burden, directly through taxes and indirectly by paying inflated prices for the goods and services they consume.

Disrupting Honest Commerce

Honest commerce means everyone gets what they pay for. If a middleman facilitates the deal, they are entitled to a reasonable transaction fee. If a middleman controls the deal, they can take pretty much whatever they want.

Denying the Right to Work

If a child is forbidden to work until age 18, that makes them a full-time consumer. Being unable to provide any kind of reasonable exchange makes them unhappy, rebellious, sometimes even criminal.
