    One of the tenets of reactionary parasitic statism is the myth that if you live within the same geopolitical area as others you have a just claim on their wealth

    Isn't the so-called "slothful" the unemployed? And the more power the "industrious" have over the "sloths", the more wealth they get from their sweat.

    this sounds like something Joe Hill would spew but it is devoid of a factual basis or a rational foundation.

    its like saying poor golfers make Tiger Rich because he wins tournaments they cannot

    So you're saying the industrious are getting money from people that are unemployed? How would a person get much money from someone who is unemployed.

    That is really, really stupid. Yet, I have every confidence that you will be able to raise the stupid bar you've just set in your next post.

    They already do that, but it's not due to taxation, it's due to bad attitudes.

    It's the whole zero-sum-game theory of economics: that there's a pie of finite size, and some have a big slice and others have almost nothing.

    The fact is that the actions of interpreneurs, inventors, and yes even capitalists make the pie bigger for everyone.

    It punishes economic success.

    I didn't think that needed explaining ...
