Hi, I have a simple question to the Occupy Movement.
As you know, the elite rules us through their wealth. They own the banks, the corporations, etc. And when the members of the elite pass away, they give their wealth to the next generation as inheritance. And so the wealth stays inside the same families from one generation to another.
So my question is this:
How do you plan to take the elite's wealth away from them?
Because of course you have to do that somehow, in order to bring real change to the world.
I myself think that the only real way to achieve this is to implement a 100% inheritance tax.
This tax would mean the end of the super rich, royalty, banking families, and so on. Also it would guarantee that no such elite can be born again.
All the wealth now held by the elite would go to the state, which can then use it for the common good.
So what is the Occupy Movement's opinion on this?
And if you oppose this idea, then tell me some alternative method on how you plan to remove the elite's wealth from them.
