たった5人によって運営されるCanadian Taxpayers Federationとは何者か

Canadian Taxpayers Federation has 5 members — why should we care what they think? - Manitoba - CBC News


Since the 1980s, there has been a deliberate effort to reframe citizens as "taxpayers" and public spending as "taxpayers' money," as if taxpayers are shareholders.


Journalists and politicians in every political party routinely use these terms without considering that this framing is anti-democratic. That is because politicians are elected by citizens, not just taxpayers.

The word "taxpayer" is not in the constitution; the word "citizen" is. All citizens are equal. Taxpayers are not.

It is self-evident that you can contribute to the economy and society without paying taxes.

Many citizens don't pay income taxes, notably children, the working poor and a few millionaires and billionaires.

Charities, churches and places of faith are all tax-exempt.


Defining taxpayers as the only people who matter has real and serious consequences for policy.

It is not a politically neutral position: it is a fairly radical right-wing ideology that drives inequality by making the rich richer while neglecting the poor.
