I hope that someday all people will receive a Yearly Good Deeds Declaration to fill out when they receive a Yearly Tax Declaration.
It could include peace, the environment, happiness, good health, spirituality with the questions below.
And one could conceive other items: Love, honesty, truth, morality, fidelity, forgiveness, etc.
The result of such a questionnaire would be as important if not more than the contribution of taxes to government expenses.
A better society would ensue.
A whole system of tax exemptions could be built on such a questionnaire. There could be for example tax deductions for voluntary services.
Yearly Good Deeds DeclarationPEACE:
