Whenever a word is prefixed by the word 'social' alarm bells should start ringing as some fraud or logical sleight of hand is invariably about to be perpetrated. 'A Social Attitude survey has found' is definitely a case in point. I have already discussed collectivist words and phrases that go under the radar such a 'public opinion' etc and the collectivist word 'social' is another.
The media this morning is full of a Public Attitude Survey that reveals that a sizeable proportion of those asked would like to see taxes raised to pay for public services. Leaving aside the dodgy methodology of such surveys and the rigged leading questions with their false premises - (ie that more money given to poorly run State services will improve them) there is an obvious solution for those who feel that they are not being taxed sufficiently,namely, they can contact the Inland Revenue service and request that it take more tax from them.
Of course such people would protest vigorously at such a suggestion as what they are really doing in such a case is virtue signalling and what they want is for other people to pay more taxes as well.
