Forum Post: Making the power of money work for us, not against us.

If the total wealth of the older generation were consolidated into a single inheritance to be distributed equally to all member of the younger generation, then, on the model of members of the same biological family inheriting equally, I claim that the power of money is such that the heirs that compose the younger generation would feel themselves to be distantly related to each other--if not by blood then by money--and in this way, wealth would be the means for establishing good will among all men instead of being the motive that drives them apart. When, however, I consider the resistance of the wealthy to such an act of consolidation, I am convinced that any path to world peace requiring a redistribution of wealth must be a war path.

I say at least let them pay the debt they ran up. 99% inheritance tax, over 5 million, till the debt is paid in full.

End the Fed and take our economy back.

There is no reason why 10 dollars I save today wont buy me a loaf of bread when I retire.
