Quote from Opulence:
Of course taxing the rich isn't the problem. Only people who BELIEVE that are poor people looking for someone to blame for their fuck-ups. The problem is way deeper than the rich being super rich. The problem is the governmental and monetary system itself.
Private banking is a problem. If banks were publicly owned they would fund the public sector in it's entirety.
The graduated income tax is a major problem for several reasons. It's very invasive, who are they to ask me what I make or how I spend it? A flat tax on consumption would bring everybody into the fold of taxpayers. Rich people that consume more would pay more. Criminals would pay taxes every time they consumed something [unless they were incarcerated]. Welfare addicts would know that if they voted for more government they would have to pay for it via more taxation.
