Mises Predicted the “Meat Tax”

We have our work cut out for us boys and girls–eternal vigilance. — jtl, 419

I hope that governments will consider introducing a health levy on red and processed meat as part of a range of measures to make healthy and sustainable decision-making easier for consumers . A health levy on red and processed meat would not limit choices, but send a powerful signal to consumers and take pressure off our healthcare systems.” [Emphases added]

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.

    WE HAVE MORE THAN OUR WORK CUT OUT FOR US; WE SOON WILL HAVE TO DEAL WITH DESTRUCTION AND DEATH, AND WE DO HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST TO CHALLENGE US TO give our souls to the adversary. WE SHALL BE TAXED TO THE DEATH FROM EVERY ANGLE, AS TO USHER IN THE MARK OF THE BEAST AND THE ANTI-CHRIST. THE MOST IMPORTANT, CRUCIAL, AND ULTIMATE EVENT ANYONE CAN PREPARE FOR, IS THE RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST. OUR LORD AND SAVIOR IS THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN SUSTAIN THE LAND, AND NOT JUST FOR A SHORT TIME, BUT FOR AN ETERNITY. THERE SHALL BE A NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH. FOR NOW, WE MUST DEAL WITH A BUREAUCRATIC SYSTEM THAT IS FIRM IN EUGENICS AND DEPOPULATION. LET US TALK ABOUT A SIMPLE MATTER, IN NEW YORK YOU ARE NOT CHARGED AN EXTRA TAX FOR A SANDWICH, BUT IF YOU REQUEST YOUR SANDWICH TO BE CUT IN HALF, THE WAY MOST DO, THEN YOU SHALL BE TAXED. IT IS GOING TO GET BETTER FOR THE ROCK BOTTOM WORSE.
