Freedom Swiss style: Pay a per head tax on your pet or the state will kill it.

So much for private property—one’s pet—being one’s own. If pet owners don’t pay the state money, most of which goes into someone else’s pocket, it will come after them. A local Swiss politician described it for what it is:

“It’s meant to put pressure on people who don’t cooperate.”

That’s what’s called “liberty” by socialists.

    Putting pressure on people who don’t cooperate is a trait shared by all governments no matter if they are capitalist/”liberal” or socialist/communist.
