No, that's why we need truly independent nations and absolute sovereignty. Every nation should be able to determine how to assign the wealth within it's borders. No more "free trade trade agreements" which are really just "property" protection agreements for the international homeless elite.

The robot owners also have deeds on pretty much all the land, they control all the robot armies, they have international treaties which say all taxation has to be approved by international tribunals run by themselves.

Forget that you are a jew for a moment and take an honest look at history. Christianity stood at the basis of classical liberalism, civilization is Christian centric.
