This is a short piece because it's more of an observation.
If you boil down every liberal/left argument today it inevitably hinges on one thing -
the rich paying more of what communists like to call "their fair share."
Forget what precisely is their "fair share." Forget numbers, forget statistics.
My question is this.
What kind of an ideology is it where your ENTIRE ideology is dependent on ONE SOLE group of people doing something that goes against their best interests?
I mean, right off the bat, you're essentially declaring your ideology unsustainable AND parasitic.
"Everything works out great as long as there's this group of people we can constantly criminalize and fleece for their money."
Well that's not an independent ideology. Heck, that's not even "ideal." It's slavery. And the only reason people tolerate it is because the slaves happen to be "rich."
But don't worry. Even in your most harsh, idealistic communist country the rich have two other options
1. Not work.
And I already told you what would happen if you decided to confiscate all their assets if those nasty evil rich people decided to flee.
12 years, max.
But still, I want a liberal or a socialist to explain to me right now how this is a FEASIBLE ideology. One where the MAJORITY of your people are dependent upon a MINORITY. Tell me how that works in terms of long term logic and stability. And I want numbers, math. None of this decaying vomit your president passes onto you lemmings as a "speech" which is nothing more than pablum.
