The idea is to keep the original underpinnings of capitalism pure, i.e. "survival of the fitest" , not survival of the people who are lucky enough to have an inheritance. This makes everyone start at the same level without artificial advantages.

This is besides the point though.
Biological and genetic inheritance is completely different from financial/asset inheritance in that one is artificial and the other is not.
Let me ask you...
Do you believe in the theoretical underpinnings of capitalism?
If so, do you not believe that the best competitors should do the best financially so that their products/services are the ones that thrive?

I don't believe the government was given the authority to take wealth from someone who has paid taxes on it to make those who are upset that their parents weren't successful feel better.
smart people give their children advantages that lead to wealth and power. Athletic parents give assets to their children that often lead to free education and sometimes great wealth
deal with it

You seem to think capitalism would be corrupted if the children of those who won the game gave them an advantage.
I say so what-it sure beats giving the government the power to stop that. My main issue is keeping the government under control, not keeping capitalism "pure"
and ultimately, those who whine for death taxes or inheritance taxes are generally envious jerks who pretend they are doing it for the "sake" of the system
