    Well at least I only want to confiscate money from the rich (because of course I'm against everyone but the rich having to pay taxes). You want to confiscate EVERYONE'S wealth.

    People who use stuff should pay taxes. That's all of us. All of us includes Zuckerberg. The question was about Zuckerberg. So I addressed the issue of Zuckerberg directly.

    The infrastructure and education argument is erroneous. You're entitled to acclimation into a community you didn't ask to join as rectification for coercion, and you're especially not expected to upkeep development you had no say in deciding how it was developed.

    Believing in the opposite would be the equivalent of saying people are guilty before proven innocent, that people have to prove their worth.

    _____

    That said, I wasn't talking about the public goods argument. I was talking about whether or not Zuckerberg deserves to be honored for improving the national interest.
    If you don't want to do that, you can renounce your citizenship, problem solved. Until then, you live here, you use the stuff taxes pay for, you pay taxes.

    No... why is anyone obligated to do anything to be entitled to respect?

    If you're forced to join an organization, the organization owes you, not the other way around.

    I don't know if you mean me, but I said he should pay taxes. As I said, we all have access to this great infrastructure, some people just do a lot more with it. I just disagree with the notion that, instead of appreciating someone's success and recognizing how that actually benefits others, we should rather feel morally justified in taking whatever it is we feel entitled to.

    I'd rather give tax immunity to our soldiers, our sailors, our airmen, and our marines before I ever give it to a guy like Zuckerberg.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'm not entirely convinced anyone should be paying taxes, given how irresponsible our government is being with our money, so I'm not very concerned with whether or not this Zuckerberg fellow, whoever he is, is paying.

    Most people here use the erroneous "infrastructure" argument, yet fail to realize that Facebook like most other orginizations, does in fact pay taxes constantly for the infrastructure that they use.
    Telecom services, like internet, incur taxes on a regular basis

    I'm more than certain that Facebook's, bandwidth usage and the associated taxes, are fully paid.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It would be interesting to see what our infrastructure would look like without highly successful and profitable businesses and corporations paying the way and providing jobs.

    Yes, he has provided a lot of value to a lot of people. Using tax-provided services and infrastructure to do so. And increasingly in his own life as he enjoys the fruits of his labors.

    He uses the things taxes pay for. He uses them more than most people. He should therefore pay taxes. What is so crazy about that?
    How do you figure that he uses more tax dollars than most people?

    lol.

    his product depends on an internet that was largely developed publicly.

    of course he should pay taxes.
