If you could think you'd know what I've written before. Not everyone should be paid the same.
However a billionaire does not work 20,000 times harder than the average worker.
Nobody should be allow to have more than 50 million in worth. And very, very few would ever
come close to this with a fair and equitable tax system in place.
At a certain point wealth becomes criminal and the threshold is far, far below what is acceptable today.
This is only common sense. No amount of propaganda can cover up this fact.

For those that think the old style Communism wor ...

If you'd rather rely on a small group of anonymous billionaires than a government, good luck to you.
