Forest Ghouls – a hoax, or a new IRS scare tactic to force the middle class to pay up their debts?

While this photo may seem photoshopped, it really isn’t. It was taken by an American deer hunter, whose name shall not be revealed for legal reasons. He was just doing his job, like any good citizen of the United States would, when he was assaulted by this “ghoul”, interrupting him.

While this may not seem significant, there was another encounter with the “Forest Ghoul” in Catalonia, Spain.

What do the two encounters have in common? Nothing, except the poor passerby’s shitting their pants.

Our sources reveal that in the past, the IRS has used scare tactics to force the middle class to pay up their debts (because lower class doesn’t have money, and higher class has legal powers to sue the IRS.)

This excerpt is taken from a booklet titled, “Losing your Illusions” by Gordon Phillips.

The IRS depends not only upon its highly publicized actions but upon its perceived power in order to instill fear into honest Americans and, according to the agency itself, to: “Maintain a sense of presence.”

“Fear is the key element for the IRS in achieving its mission. Without fear, the IRS would have a difficult time maintaining our so-called system of voluntary compliance…”– Sam Presti

In 1953, Mr. Dwight Avis, head of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division on the Bureau of Inter-nal Revenue Service stated to a subcommittee of the Commit-tee on Ways and Means in the House of Representatives, “Let me point this out now: Your in-come tax is 100 percent voluntary tax, and your liquor tax is 100 percent enforced tax..”

In 1971, the following quote was found in the IRS instruction booklet for the 1040: “Each year American Taxpayers voluntarily file their tax returns and make a special effort to pay the taxes they owe.”

March 29, 1974, IRS Commissioner Donald C. Alexander published the following state-ment in the Federal Register: “ The mission of the Service is to encourage and achieve the highest possible degree of voluntary compliance with the tax laws and regulations…”

Only one year later, his successor authorized this statement to be put in the Internal Revenue Manual, “Our tax system is based on voluntary compliance.”

In 1971, the following quote was found in the IRS instruction booklet for the 1040: “Each year American Taxpayers voluntarily file their tax returns and make a special effort to pay the taxes they owe.”

Voluntary Compliance simply means that the taxpayer is responsible for filing an income tax return if the law re-quires a return.

“We encourage voluntary com-pliance by scaring the hell out of you!” Roger Olsen Asst. Attorney General, 1987

“. . . when it comes to the workings of our tax system, I have just about seen it all, and that experience has led me to the conclusion that we should repeal the Internal Revenue Code and start over. Eight decades. . . have produced an impenetrable maze. I favor replacing the sys-tem.”

— Shirley D. Peterson, Attorney,

former IRS Commissioner

“… the key question is: can we define ‘income’ in a fair and reasonably straightforward manner? Unfortunately we have not yet succeeded in doing so. We should repeal the Internal Revenue Code and start over.”

— Former IRS Commissioner

Shirley Peterson, April 1993

“Eight decades of amendments… to [the] code have produced a virtually impenetrable maze… The rules are unintelligible to most citizens… The rules are equally mysterious to many government employees who are charged with administering and enforcing the law”.

“Today the income tax is in trouble, because its exaction’s are forcing the middle class into poverty, and IRS abuses are routine.”

— Paul Craig Roberts, former

Asst. Secretary – U.S. Treas-ury

“The (tax) system is so sick that we must put it to sleep and start over.”– Richard Davis, former As-sistant IRS Branch Chief

“I believe that a better way to raise revenue not only can be found but must be found be-cause I am convinced that the present system is leading us right back to the very tyranny from which those, who estab-lished this land of freedom, risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to for-ever free themselves…” “I don’t like the income tax. Every time we talk about these taxes we get around to the idea of ‘from each according to his capacity and to each according to his needs’. That’s socialism. It’s written into the Communist Manifesto. Maybe we ought to see that every person who gets a tax return receives a copy of the Communist Manifesto with it so he can see what’s happening to him”.

Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear.

–Harry S. Truman

With the evidence exposing the IRS’s fear tactics, is it so far fetched to assume that they would deploy “Forest Ghouls” to menace the people that “owe” them debts?

While the encounter in America took place in the homeland of the IRS, the encounter in the youtube video happened in Spain. But is anything in the world able to stop the IRS from collecting their debts, even the debtor illegally escaping to the EU?
