Expensive luxury parties, private jets, and 7-figure salaries. These are all things that are being financed with the greatly expanded toll booths around the country.

In an effort to justify this parasitic enterprise at the expense of the masses, some have tried to use arguments for the environment and climate. Through massive demonstrations and sabotage actions. the masses have shown that they do not believe these lies. They know that it is the rich that is destroying the planet. They know that the rich can afford to drive their luxury cars through the toll booths as many times as they’d like, all while the masses themselves are punished for their need to drive to work and drop their children off at school. Yet again, the truth has shown that the masses are correct, as with our toll fees, the people at the top pay 42,000 kroner per head to attend a congress of toll-capitalists in Australia.
Yet again, this shows that the capitalists will never solve the climate crisis. Their “solutions” are to ransack the masses in order to be able to keep up their luxury lifestyles and continue their hunts for profit that are destroying the planet.
The luxury does not end there. According to NRK, the leaders of the toll companies Ferde and Fjellinjen make 1.63 million and 1.50 million kroners a year, respectively. Fjellinjen has hired stand-up comedians and choirs to entertain at their company parties. And Ferde covers 186 alcoholic units during their Christmas parties.
The administrative director of Fjellinjen, Anne-Karin Sogn, tells NRK that she earns every kroner she makes. The company claims that they have 700,000 “customers”. This is an insult to the masses while an incredible number of people live in poverty and are forced to pay for her luxurious lifestyle.
It is this arrogance that only stokes the flames of the masses’ revolt against the tolls.
In an attempt to curb the rebellion, the Minister of Transportation has called for audits of the accounts. But putting an end to the worst excesses of the parties would hardly deliver any justice to the people. Seven-figure salaries, pricey consultants, corruption, luxury lifestyles, and expensive travels are the norm for the bourgeoisie. Both in the private and public sectors. And while such companies are established and become well-known, politicians live similar lives in the same circles.
The injustice of this system will naturally lead to a continued struggle. Tjen Folket Media has written several cases on tolls and the toll revolts earlier:
