Not true.  In China the land can be taken anytime.  And it happens all the time.

Governments manage money much better than rich people.
A billionaire doesn't work 20,000 times harder than the average wage earner.
All the money of a billionaire is locked up in his or hers accounts. It is wasted.
The government keeps the money in circulation as it should be.
Defending the rich is no better than defending murders, rapists, or child molesters.
They all are a detriment to society.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

That is another problem. They can try to solve it - by becoming businesspeople. Why should the r ...

Of course..... let everybody become a banker, and lend money they do not have at 30% APR.

And why not.......  isn't that what the banks have been doing?

You are not just intellectually challenged....... you are a moral invalid with it, and should wear a badge warning others to keep clear.
The world needs more idiots like me, all the others think they are clever.

Once more, to drive it home to the bulletproof skulls of our dinosaur-brained:

Tax everyone the sam ...

Taxation has nothing to do with fairness mon Baron. It is a necessity for maintaining the functions of the state. You cannot tax one with no money it is impractical..... unless...... you are after a pound of flesh.

The more tax justice you have, the better patriotism you get. Hong Kong has steadfastly attracted the world's rich, inventive, creative, poor and rich alike.


Corruption in Hong Kong was endemic. Under the British everyone was on the take, and I do not believe that things have changed all that much since, despite all the efforts.

Places like that attract the world's criminals, rich or otherwise.....

You should shave the sheep, but not to the bones ;) It should survive.

It seems you have never known where the moral 'North" is on your "moral compass". WHy would anyone ...

Actually a lot of these are high paying jobs.
Imagine being a chef on a cruise ship or a hotel, or a famous small restaurant booked out a month ahead.
A vintner with my own vineyard, I'd open a restaurant serving venison und hasen vielleicht auch florellen eith a lovely red or a crisp white .
Product designers: ladies garment industry, ladies shoes and accessories , big money, as the saying goes accesorize!
Maitre d earn a lot of money. Good to know those on a first name basis if you want a table...
All of them take skills, some
