And I think it is a hopeless cause for you to even understand the principle behind progressive taxation as I have not yet seen anything you have said that even hints that you have an understanding of its principle. I am not completely sure, but as a lawyer, aren't you supposed to be able to understand your opponents position in order to make credible arguments against it?
I'll try explaining it one more time ...
Let me begin by asking you some questions ...
Do you believe taxes are necessary? Why or why not?
If the majority of society agrees taxes are necessary, do you believe it is ethically sound to tax a citizen who does not have enough money to pay the most humble of living expenses, i.e. clothing, food and shelter? Why or why not?
Do you think that equal opportunity is ethical? Why or why not?
Once you have answered these questions, I may have some idea s to whether or not you will be able to understand the concept of progressive taxation and I can continue explaining it to you.
