Re.: Notice of objection                             
Re. (assessment) number: 64.57.502.V.70.0112 dated 31 January 2007

Dear Tax Inspector,

I am writing to you to formally object to the 2007 provisional corporation tax assessment, number 64.57.502.V.70.0112.

De Hutte Holding BV refuses to pay tax on its interest income, given that the current monetary and financial system is based on the assumption that money is worth money. Bureaucratic profit from nothing. The assumption that money is worth money has led to today's bureaucracy being better protected by the legal system than democracy, the environment, human rights and the constitutional state itself.

It has reduced the economy to a two-dimensional world that is no longer capable of discerning social priorities. Money, profit, interest, tax and donations are money irrespective of where they come from. It has held politics, democracy, the business community and the individual captive/hostage and alienated from reality. Intentionally or unintentionally, it has seen unchecked bureaucracy become the key priority for government, justice and society, slowly but surely choking creativity, authenticity, sincerity, natural freedom and solidarity. It has turned citizens into worshippers and serfs of bureaucracy as a result of which security, sustainability, trust, well-being and an integrated economy have become empty concepts, trapped in a two-dimensional world of profit, growth, inflation, interest rates, debt, etc. This bureaucratisation represents humanity's flight from reality into a paper make-believe world, entangling us in a two-dimensional bureaucratic web, creating an ocean of powerlessness and indifference and a fertile breeding ground for crime, terrorism and war.

We have created a world in which neither the government nor the people are in control, but the unchecked bureaucratic corruption, without us wondering where this has come from: the assumption that money is worth money, interest. The question now is whether this is in the spirit of the law. Where does competition end and do crime, terrorism and war begin and what role do politics, the legal system and the individual play in this? Do we have any sense of responsibility for the world we live in or would we rather play hide-and-seek in a flat, two-dimensional world that is both soulless and lifeless?

Yours sincerely,

Peter Hoopman

APPENDIX II

(Relating to de Hutte Holding BV’s notice of objection, number 64.57.502.V.70.0112, to the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, 11-2-2007)

Back to reality

and the search for a politico-economic simplicity based on democratic principles

This notice of objection serves little purpose, however true or untrue it may be, if it does not propose some kind of alternative. Questioning interest in the Netherlands and Europe is comparable to a non-believer in the Middle Ages telling the Pope that God has been dead for years. It is, therefore, important for this notice of objection to offer insight into a possible alternative.

What is (will be) the new political and economic priority? What priorities does everyone share?

  1. Clean air

  2. Clean drinking water

  3. Healthy and, if possible, tasty food

  4. Shelter inner ring, seven basic priorities

  5. Education (that underpin safety, freedom and solidarity)

  6. Health care

  7. Nature and infrastructure

       and a functional bureaucracy that serves these seven basic priorities

These seven priorities must form the basis for our political, economic and legal thinking and actions. They apply to individuals, families, municipalities, regions, countries, continents and the planet we live on. Medium- and small-sized businesses must fulfil key responsibilities. When these have been practically implemented, there is additional room for:

  1. The art of self-realisation through honesty of mind and integrity of sprit

  2. Science

  3. Art of living the outer ring, the self-realisation process

  4. Research and development

  5. Renunciation and tolerance

 

When we replace the current economic priority of (bureaucratic) profit that facilitates the payment of interest and taxes with the above-mentioned seven practical basic priorities, which can repair trust, integration and participation, we will have formed a healthy basis for the self-realisation process, which is the most essential expression of individuality as part of life. Not egocentric, but living completely as part of the world and not at its expense. The above-mentioned idea is an attempt to improve the harmonisation of individual interests and public interests, as a result of which individual interests will gradually merge into the so-called public interests. That can only happen when we become conscious of the place we have in this world. This is different for everyone, which is what makes everyone’s life unique and meaningful.

From this perspective, the economy is nothing more than consciousness-raising, fleshing out our inner well-being for the benefit of society. This will take us from an economic science based on "scarcity" to one based on individual and societal well-being.
