Was King Solomon righteous, wise, or foolish to mandate forced labor in lieu of paying taxes in his Nation?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, “Medicare for All” could be problematic, CBO says, reports it “can be complicated and potentially disruptive for Americans.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to explain in a brief series of posts, why King Solomon used forced labor to equalize fair taxation as a means to unite everyone in his Nation to prevent a segment from being disenfranchised from their responsibilities to fund their nation.

If you think Medicare for all will be disruptive in “the most prosperous Nation in the world,” where fifty percent of workers pay no Federal Income Taxes, what will you think about forced labor as a means to end the disenfranchised poor people as an equitable means to pay taxes?

The result perhaps being one way to cure the low voter turnout because poor people have no reason or incentives to be concerned about what their Government Leaders are deciding about their Nation?

Or that poor people are not at all concerned about the present 22 trillion-dollar National Debt because they have nothing to lose since they do not own 80 percent of Nations assets?

Whoa!

 Am I Nuts, Wise or Foolish for bringing up the subject of forced labor in the USA?

The unrighteousness of implementing forced labor on the poor in the USA, where the inequity of 20 percent of the population own 80 percent of the wealth and assets?

Definition of disenfranchise (Merriam Webster)

transitive verb

to deprive of a franchise, of a legal right, or of some privilege or immunity especially to deprive of the right to vote disenfranchising the poor and elderly.

King Solomon

When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan. (Proverb 29:2)

What’s My Point?

To Compare King Solomon rule to the present news about politicians now introducing and promising Socialism as the best means to solve disenfranchisement of wealth and opportunity to everyone in the USA?

If interested

Read on about his reasons and then decide if you should consider the righteousness of King Solomon’s reasoning for the USA. To help end the groaning of both the poor and rich about taxation, health care, wealth distribution, homelessness, mental illness, drugs, education.

In the Source Link Below three previous posts. One is an example of what happened recently in Iraq. The other two are about wealth distribution in the USA and taxation equity justice.

Perhaps these posts may warm up interested readers to my next post of what happens in every Nation in the World when people become disenfranchised from their Government and politicians and demagogues start feeding the idea of Socialism again to the disenfranchised voters in the Nation.

Regards and good will blogging.
