We can divide the nation into three main stakeholders: people who create wealth, the government, and people who don’t create wealth. People who create wealth give a part of their wealth by paying business taxes to the government. The government uses this wealth to finance its plan and support all stakeholders: the government himself, people who don’t create wealth, and people who do. So people who create wealth are the cornerstone of our system. And the balance of our system depends on the level of taxes fixed by the government. On one hand, the more a government taxes people, the more the government puts a constraint on them, the more work is depreciated, and the more people lose independence. If you push this model at end, the system becomes a dictatorship. On the other hand, if you push the model toward its opposite, the system becomes an anarchy. With this reasoning, we understand that democracy is between dictatorship and anarchy, and that the level of taxes fixed by the government can be an indicator of democracy. The sweet point of democracy is reached when the balance between the three stakeholders is well-balanced and fair. When people are too taxed, you should wonder about the direction in which you are moving. And as Plato said: “Excess generally causes reaction, and produces a change in the opposite direction, whether it be in the seasons, or in individuals, or in governments”.
