TL/DR: Emma Watson spends time campaigning for social justice, and is one of the most prominent faces of the new generation of feminists. Right now she is employed by the UN as the "Women Goodwill Ambassador". Because of the panama papers we have learnt that she is employing the same financial tricks used by the neoliberal elite that is not paying their fair share of taxes and bleeding societies dry. This reinforces the red pill principle of how SJWs don't actually care about the social welfare of the masses, their true interest is in maximizing their power/influence, and they will hide behind causes while doing this.
I literally cackled with glee when the notification flashed across my phone: Emma Watson had been named in the Panama Papers leak. For those who haven't been following, the Panama Papers are a massive data leak that showed how some of the richest people/corporations in the world hide their money in off-shore companies based in Panama, often using these entities to reduce their tax burden or launder money.
This leak is so big it's going to take a year+ for us to figure out who is all in it. So far, major figures have been implicated e.g. David Cameron's father, Putin, the King of Saudi Arabia etc. Today we learnt that Emma Watson owns her London apartment through an off-shore company created by the same Panamian law firm that helped many of the global elite to launder money/avoid taxes.
Now, offshore companies are not illegal per se. However, this is because the world's powerful write the rules to not make them illegal. If the masses truly understood the big picture and had control the legislative process, these entities would be regulated way tighter than they are now, possibly banned. You do not get one of these entities unless you are trying to hide some sort of information about your money.
One of the big issues in our world today is wealth inequality. Worse than gender inequality I would say, because, if SJWs want more gender equality, then fixing wealth inequality will go along way to help. Money is literally being vacuumed to the top, and social programs are not being sponsored. For decades, people have been cheating societies by being able to use community owned resources, while not paying the appropriate fee that maintains those resources. Of course, the working schmucks (upper middle class and below) are left with the bill.
It is amazing that somebody who runs around preaching to us about social justice, and how we have to be better etc., employs the same oppressive techniques used by the supposed patriarchy that she is supposedly pushing back against.
This is her explanation. Tell me if it passes the sniff test:
UK companies are required to publicly publish details of their shareholders and therefore do not give her the necessary anonymity required to protect her personal safety, which has been jeopardised in the past owing to such information being publicly available
Oh, so your only way of protecting your anonymity just so happens to be buying a company from Panamanians that are world renowned for their money laundering and tax evasion expertise. Totally makes sense.
Lessons learned: It's always about power.

Edit: Wowzers! I clearly struck a nerve here! I am happy that we could get some discussion going. I appreciate that 150K of people are not going to perfectly align on political views. A diversity of viewpoints is a good thing. Putting the ideological differences aside, the key takeaway here is that Emma Watson is a hypocrite who advocates for big government for her social justice agenda, while at the same time hiding her money from said big government. Rarely do SJWs get caught out in such a way.
Edit 2 The feminist defenses have started to come out. General argument: "She did good for women, so the author doesn't care about her potential tax issues." I wonder if this defense would work for a man in the same situation.
