Redwood's intellect is not in doubt..... I personally admire the chap, it is his motives that are questionable.

Its NOT true to say the rich pay miniscule Taxes, we know this from Treasury figures.


Of course... 10% of one million is 100,000, which is a very large sum, but 100% of nothing is still nothing.  Hence the disparity, between the taxes collected from the rich, and those collected from the poor.

This was said when China was an old style agrarian society. The idea conveyed by words escapes you yet again.
