Taxation

The US taxes its citizens regardless of where their money is earned or where they live. The results of that taxation is a mountain of paperwork that can force US citizens to hire international tax specialists.

The burden of filing international taxes increased in recent years after the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act became law in 2010.

Shallow River

Search engines settle every bar bet, yet deny the ice-breaking bar chatter that may have warmed your bed that night. The art of description is replaced with the accuracy of photography and video—more exact, less compelling. Facebook makes sure that no one misses my birthday while eradicating its meaning. The program is the one sending me cards; relying on the feature, my friends have long forgotten the actual date. … Our information flows in a broader river than ever before, but it’s so shallow. Keeping the digital realm largely confined to desktop cages once contained this devolution, but no more.

Not having an opinion means not having an obligation. And not being obligated is one of the sweetest of life’s riches.
