I say scrap the tax relief and put a tax on imported game products higher than the native tax.

Teach the freaking companies that they are a part of the Nations health and if they want to sell their products there, they need to be willing to help support that nation.

I seriously hate companies that try to do things like this. Its all about money to them, but the health of the nation itself not even on their list, which they suffer if the nation suffers also.

Who needs the roads, healthcare, laws, protection, etc.... Oh yeah, just the consumers that buy their products.

Are thoses workers for Activision going to follow the company? I would think that some would move, but I personally had parents that moved around and I hated it. I just love being close to family. The only way I would move away from New York is if my whole family moved together or I was offered a position that paided more than double what I am making now. Which is something we are talking about doing.

Yea, until a foreign country decides it's going to park a few battleships around you island and make you pay for coming in and going out.

Why doesn't Activision just try to take over a country like North Korea or something?

Governments were designed to help protect its people, so they get involved with businesses.

If not for the governments everyone would get payed as little as possible, worked to the bone with no benefits.

You can't do that. There are international trade agreements that cannot be broken for butthurt revenge.

Lol. Businesses create prosperity. Without them there is no money for the government to tax. Big government proponents fail to realize the long term consequences of allowing the parasite to suck the host dry.

And people's salary should be directly proportional to their skill set, and how irreplaceable it is. Someone sitting in a factory screwing lids on bottles all day should be paid what they are worth - next to nothing. Their skillset contributes nothing to society and they are easily replaced by a monkey or machine. If they want more money then they should go to school to learn a valuable skill.
