The Panama Papers Reveal The “Big Global Problem”

The largest data leak in history has people in a tizzy. Virtual lynch mobs are calling for the heads of all those who have appeared in various infographics documenting their supposedly-possibly-disturbing connections to suggested nefarious dealings … by associates, family members and childhood friends in many cases.

By extension, knowingly or not, these lynch mobs have quickly called on government to rein in anyone who might use a legal vehicle (for now, see below) to protect their wealth.

I’d like to put aside the questions that have been legitimately raised about the geopolitical implications of who has been revealed, or questions about whether these alleged crimes are equal to what some of these individuals really could stand trial for, and focus instead on the reaction from the general public.

Firstly, I’d like to think that I’m not naïve; of course people who seek the darker regions of the real and virtual world tend to be more inclined to interpret “the law” in non-official and even truly criminal ways. However, it also tends to be true that a percentage of those who seek the shadows simply would like to avoid a severe burn brought about by forced exposure to sunshine.

The Panama Papers do indeed reveal a significant global problem. For Barack Obama, and those of his ilk, it is a problem which is stated simply: “that a lot of this stuff is legal, not illegal.” Which gets right to the heart of the matter for anyone who believes in liberty – legality versus, say, morality.

In this way, the Panama Papers have unintentionally revealed, at the very least, that “the elite” – but by no means THE ELITE – see the global economic system as something toescape from, not something toparticipate in as instructed by laws and regulations. Some might conclude, then, that all of these politicians and businessmen are admitted criminals. Really, all of them? Or perhaps they are tacitly acknowledging how unjust are the policies which they seek to impose on the rest of humanity?

This is good news. Those within the system – consciously or not – have told the rest of the world (well, leaked to) that the very system they inhabit is one big extortionate scheme that should be dodged at all costs if one has the ability to figure out how to do it.

This should lead to uncomfortable personal reflection, not knee-jerk outrage from the extorted. For example, perhaps the real Big Global Problem is not avoidance of taxes from whatever colony demands that you pay them protection money, but a problem with those who seek misery if only to have company.

In other words, slave on slave violence. It’s becoming an all-too common theme for the oppressed masses to shout for the wealthy “elite” to be brought down to size, rather than seeking to shrug off the chains that keep themselves from reaching financial heights. Namely, the inherent right to keep the fruits of one’s labor.
