did you know? In Finland speeding tickets are calculated based on your income - causing some Finnish millionaires to pay fines of over $100000 ? did-you-kno In Finland speeding tickets are calculated based on your income causing some Finnish millionaires to pay fines of over $100000 Source redbloodedamerica This is what equality looks like in that liberal fairy tale land of Finland They punish you proportionately to how successful you are Sounds really fair alternian-neverland Except it is fair? Because it's proportionate I don't get what's difficult about that An impoverished person paying $400 dollar fine isn't the same as a millionaire paying the same amount For the poor person $400 dollars could mean starving Would you really claim it would have the same consequence for a rich man? Would it even be noticeable to him while the absence of food in their stomach would be glaring to a poorer man? Would it be fair for a man to starve for the same crime as a man that would be having a three course meal? By taking income into account it allows the impoverished able to still survive while paying any fines they may incur And ultimately while $100000 dollars would be noticeable to a millionaire they would still get by And assuming the law is properly implemented they would be paying the same equivalent of their yearly income that a poorer person would That's what makes it fair They woulc be impacted the same way but you are looking at the amount rather than the equation Also it's important to make sure that even the rich would pause at the cost of a fine They need to fear the law just as a poor man does prochoice-or-gtfo Oh no rich people facing fines that might actually make them consider not doing illegal things because the punishments might actually hurt them how unfair Did you know about the liberal fairy tale land of Finland?
