so they're planning on raising taxes on the top 2% of earners in NZ, which is a good thing overall, and trying try to ensure that multinationals pay more taxes

overall: this is good


upside: we all buy more society

downside: right-wing trash will be very loud and shitty about this

downside: it's an election promise and NZ has a strong right-wing current and even though Labour has nailed it through the pandemic we live in a dystopian hell of weaponised propaganda through memes so this has me a bit concerned tbh

@aurynn the right wing will invent whatever it needs to be shitty about, so you might as well give them something popular and useful to be shitty about.
