It's interesting that tax rates are not a criterion in the HFI. Taxation is a form of slavery which is inversely proportional to Freedom, i.e., the higher the taxation, the lower the human's freedom to utilize  their wealth as they see fit.

If a person's wealth is taken from them by the Government, this could be quantified by the rate at which it is taken.

A country  that had a tax rate of 6% or zero% should have a higher HFI ranking than a country  with a 36% Tax Rate.

A country with a Tax Rate of over 6% has serious management problems. Usually in the forms of  excessive spending on entitlements, the Military, and other social programs not connected to supporting infrastructure.

League of White Nations?

Is it beginning to dawn on anyone that degrees of government socialism don't really matter when you're comparing white nations to brown ones...

Libertarians don't really care about skin color, and civilized governments aren't allowed to show favoritism based on anything. All people must be treated equally under law. Anything less is uncivilized.

That's true, to a point. Taxation to provide for  police and national defense and a system of justice contribute to the preservation of liberty, and some nations need to spend quite a bit more on defense and policing than others.
If you are Israel, surrounded by nations committed to wiping you off the face of the earth, taxes need to be higher to provide adequate defense.

Taxation for wealth transfer is always uncivilized.

Funny, blacks and browns don't really care about libertarianism.

I wonder what they'll vote for after you import them? Limited Constitutional government, no doubt. Roll Eyes

Only "white" people are willing to immigrate in the hope of living in a free country, where they have an opportunity to do well for themselves and their families? Nonsense. A flat lie.

Does a tribal mind prevent rational thought? Yours seems to.

You continue to misunderstand Constitutional government. It limits the government in what it can do. People can vote for whoever they want, but those elected are limited in their power to act, limited in their power to make laws.

Repealing the 17th Amendment and returning the Senate to being the voice of the States in the national government would go a very long way in returning us to limited government. A few other simple Constitutional modifications would essentially return us to being a free country, a country with a civilized government.

You know that.

Everyone wants to immigrate to white nations, regardless of whether or not they are libertarian. And once they get there, they do not magically assimilate to the prevailing white (libertarian or not) culture.

Limited by WHO, idiot? Only PEOPLE can limit other people. A piece of paper has never done a damn thing to limit anyone unless there was a man with a gun standing behind it.

When your crappity smacking brown voters vote for people who want to tear your precious piece of paper into tiny shreds, WHO is going to stop them?

YOU CAN'T EVEN BALANCE THE crappity smackING BUDGET, YOU MORONIC, EMPTY-HEADED ASSHAT!

Tribal racist.

Civilized people want to have a civilized government so they want to move to countries where the government is more civilized. It's easier than getting rid of barbarian governments.

Both barbarians and civilized people come in all skin colors. Here on earth.
