    That's insanity. So you would allow the rich to pass on massive domes of money while everyone else picks up scraps?

    I say you can only pass on property, not money. Especially over 1-5mill or so.

    Re: Income Inequality

    1) The cause is from love of materialism and unfettered corporate access to political influence. Also a lack of foresight as seeing employees as the most valuable assets.

    2) Long term trend will be a continuing separation of social classes and shrinking middle, until the rich can't isolate themselves from the effects of the weakened masses and start to feed off each other.

    3) Solution. Pray. Or identify the problems and make efforts to slowly trend away from them.

    Re: Income Inequality

    Our interventions have been the problem, the last thing we need to do is make matters worse doing more. The "War on Poverty" has been a failure with so much cost to show for that failure, and between ole (D) and (R) they have done enough damage with trade policy, outdated immigration policy, economic policy, fiscal policy and Fed monetary policy.

    Here's a map of the world with the nations scaled according to wealth rather than actual geographic size. Food for thought:

    Since govt employees are REQUIRED to join these public sector unions, and since the money they forcibly take are spent supporting dems, even against the wishes of the employee-thats not good enough.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    What has anyone else done to EARN those scraps? Why do you think that anyone else ought to benefit from the hard work of others?
