Not Competitive - They Know It and They Show It. Defenders of the welfare state quite often claim that it is economically competitive. They say that tax cuts, de-regulations and privatizations are totally unnecessary. Such ideas are called neo-liberal ideological propaganda.

But look at reality. If the welfare state were competitive, a number of things that the defenders themselves constantly want would not be necessary:

Special tax reductions for foreign experts, for example. Or subsidies to some big companies. Or limits to competition from foreign trade and labour. Or efforts to force neighbouring countries to raise their tax pressure. Or all this rhetoric to portray people who want to keep their own money as evil. Or all the money to propaganda for the big state by the state. Or the fact that many taxes are hidden. Or all the control mechanisms to see to it that people don?t cheat on the welfare systems. Etc, etc.

By their actions and their proposals, they show every day that their system is not competitive. If it had been, all the exceptions, propaganda and control would be unnecessary. How can these people put forward such contradictions and defend a system with daily lies?
