Of course my statement about Denmark being like venezuela is a bit sarcastic
, But even i have to admit that something is about to go wrong in our capitalistic societys.
yesterday i read an article that our government is planning to install a digital reader on al El-cabinets belonging to people on social wealthfare to track their use of electricity. The idea here is too see any unusual activity in their use of electricity to judge whether they're home or not, When you receive social wealthfare in Denmark you are not allowed to travel outside the country or far away from your community(unless you report it) because you have to be nearby in case a job is found for you.
But this is only one of the initiatives taken to prevent fraud with our tax money, Another one is a special task force inserted in Kastrup airport(Copenhagen) to catch more of all those that lives in another country or takes vacation(without reporting it) And then only comes home to collect their benefits All this
will only apply to people on social benefits and retirement pension, And my god i don't hope this is going through (Talk about state surveillance).
Of course you should uphold the law and not cheat, But this smells more like our government is trying to make a statement that depict a picture that people on social benefits are more likely to cheat, I've been thinking about this a lot and i can't believe this has been suggested from our politicians (Only 2 parties are against it)
Until now this initiativ has been funded with 2.2 million Kr and so far it has brought in about 1.2 million kr (WOW), All this for peanuts.
But what about the 12 billion that the Danish tax system was swindled for by foreigners, And what about our national bank that (Again) was caught in whitewashing of money. It's very very quiet.
And even then, our politicians are wondering why our trust in them is lower than used car dealers.
