The “Tax Mahal”: A Shrine to Corporate Socialism
William N. Grigg
According to architect Jonathan Levi, the renovation of the IRS regional headquarters in Andover, Massachusetts is a “visionary” project that “will be relevant 50 years from now.”
This is true in exactly the same sense that the Soviet-era monuments that still disfigure the Russian countryside remain relevant reminders of that omnivorous state.
Our descendants would be exceptionally fortunate if the Andover IRS “service center” were among the institutional tombstones marking the demise of history’s most profligate kleptocracy.
This morning’s headlines bring fresh evidence that the Regime may implode far sooner than many expect: The Federal Government’s debt will exceed the gross domestic product no later than 2012, a development that will most likely initiate a “debt super cycle” in which we will experience both hyperinflation and extortionate interest rates.
The IRS’s “Tax Mahal”
Like their antecedents in the Gorbachev-era Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the American nomenklatura is preparing for the impending implosion by siphoning away whatever wealth they can find. This is why maintaining and enhancing the State’s instruments of coercion and wealth extraction is the Regime’s most urgent priority.
