A lot of people in the world want more government programs. We need to raise taxes in order to pay for that, right? Many people don’t want to pay more taxes, and they are willing to do without government programs because of it. To them, those programs don’t mean as much, because they aren’t using all of them.
So, the continuous battle rages. The Left fights for higher taxes/more programs. The Right fights for lower taxes/less programs. Neither side will ever stop wanting what they want and, because of that, few realize this is a battle that cannot be resolved.
Or, can it?
The answer is in this ebook, The Next Step.
In The Next Step, I discuss how more programs and less taxes can be achieved through non-tax revenue, providing an alternative to ideological stalemate.
The Next Step outlines:
– How we have already begun this.
– How it can be done better.
– Why it needs to happen in the first place.
It can be seen taking place all the time, but most don’t even realize it. Before our very eyes, there is a potential future – another way to pay for government. When things like crowdfunding, government financial services, bonds, surplus for sale, natural resources, and a host of other non-tax alternatives are in action, they are brushed off as not applicable, a bit of a nuisance, or unreliable. The reality is they and other ideas like them not only fund governments, they are evidence that government can be paid for another way.
Is the content in this ebook politically leaning to one side or the other? No, it's learning to both. Each side has valid concerns. If the truth existed on any one side, it would be a whole. The only whole truth about politics is that everybody ends up divided. Taxes and the programs they fund are about people, not politics. It’s people who need them and it's people who are paying for them.
In The Next Step, one can find a list of all non-tax possibilities of funding, including those which are ideas for new approaches. Elsewhere, there isn’t much discussion about how to improve those sources or why they should happen at all. Here, there is. To the date of publication, this ebook is the only source of its kind.
Sources other than taxation must be considered. Humankind has gone to intrepid lengths to advance itself. It’s imperative that we don't let a Left/Right political divide, ignoring one side or the other, hinder our progress toward independence, empowerment, and integrity. This ebook explains how the throes of something better have already begun taking place. Learn how the world can be transformed by searching for sources of government funding outside of traditional norms and why that’s desperately needed.
What is experienced now is the result of a previous step taken. It is the people of today who take The Next Step that brings everyone else to a place of difference, or to the status quo.

Is there really a way to pay for government without taxation? The Next Step's author says not only is there another way, but that it's already happening and desperately needs crucial development.
UNITED STATES - Sept. 06, 2019 - Author D.R.K. attempts to address what he says everyone knows but never questions. The modern people of today are forced to rely on a product that was conceived for people who lived long ago. "Next to the wheel, there aren't many ancient concepts that modern society remains dependent on in order to function, particularly from thousands of years ago. Taxation is an exception to this, and that is remarkable," says D.R.K., who also explains that although taxes might have had a place and purpose, their long-term use is at the detriment of empowerment, independence, and the development of human interaction.
He goes on to say that without an evolution of such an archaic system, government forever places itself as the parent of a child who never fully matures. Arguing that a society which doesn't control the money a government receives doesn't really control a government, The Next Step builds a case for why non-tax revenue should gradually take the place of taxation, as depicted in the following excerpt: As a child becomes more mature and starts to make decisions on their own, they still need parents, but choices can be made by themselves more frequently. That's where civilization is at now. It still needs government, but can start choosing when and how much, directly correlated to revenue. This can be done by modernizing government's funding method.
D.R.K. provides a long list of non-tax alternatives that, when employed to their fullest extent, could provide this transition. Already, he says, some of those sources are in use today and gaining strength. He notes the U.S. government, for example, has increased its use of non-tax revenue by as much as nearly 10% in recent decades, and that number is rising. Providing numerous examples of taxation problems, D.R.K. outlines a record of complication, division, cost, and immorality with today's primary funding method for governments, such as:
-The Commerce Clearing House (CCH) publishes a representation of the American tax code called the Standard Federal Tax Reporter, and it's 70,000 pages long.
-During an interview conducted by the media, voters in a Texas town with a 95% voting record in favor of President Trump are quoted as disliking the man they voted for, but felt compelled to vote for him simply because of taxation issues.
-The cost in America to pay taxes is estimated to be $377.5 billion, without the actual cost of the taxes themselves. This is the cost of all paperwork and mistakes (compliance), non-reported and hidden income with the attempt to locate it (non-compliance), and operating expenses for that country's tax collecting organization. No doubt, other countries experience something similar.
-D.R.K. debates the point for a resemblance between criminal organizations that require payment for protection with the threat of aggression, and a government requiring payment for its services with the threat of penalty. He states this design does nothing to win the hearts and minds of many who struggle to support the good that government is designed to accomplish.
With guidance on how to implement more non-tax revenue solutions in any part of the world, The Next Step affirms that many are willing to acknowledge taxation is a necessary evil, but refuse to acknowledge how that evil becomes their fault if they don't attempt to make it better. In particular, governments designed to protect liberty should have a funding mechanism that mirrors the same liberation. According to The Next Step, non-tax revenue is that system.
