    Re: A Q about morality

    It's one thing earning money and it's another thing evading taxes by stashing it into offshore banks.

    Personally, I feel the governments all over the world should tighten the screws and fill the loopholes in their system that allow for tax evasion.

    Considering a major chunk of the Black money stays with politicians....... I don't think we will be seeing a solution to this problem anywhere in the near future.

    Also it's not immoral to have so much money, it just means they were smarter than the rest of us. You have to deal with it or adopt Socialism.

    Agreed 100% about the government tightening regulations with accounting loopholes.

    Re: A Q about morality

    Okay, here's the thing. Capitalism gives every individual a reason to work hard in hopes that one day they might, in some wild dream, become the 1% or at least be fabulously wealthy. This is why capitalism works, it motivates people to get up and do something. Someone who's unbelievably poor and basically living in hell might one day get tired of that and go out to do something. This is why you never give out unemployment.

    Democratic socialism does not work because it seeks to level the playing field. For some reason everyone believes that they can be a slave owner; but if everyone is a slave owner, then who will be the slaves? (Sorry, I keep forgetting, they call them "employees" now, silly me)

    Communism doesn't work because it removes the motivation to get up and work harder. If everyone gets the same amount of money whether they work hard or not, then everyone will do the minimum and the system collapses rapidly.

    To someone in the lower and middle class, the 1% seem like monsters out to destroy everything. The real reason people don't like the 1% is because they're the only ones that aren't slaves...I mean employees. What needs to be realized is that they're the ones that mak this world go 'round. Without them it would be over very quickly, so on a moral standpoint, yeah, I'd say they're great.

    What you and OP don't seem to understand is that the "99ers" have more power than the "1%"... You can have all the money in the world you want, but there needs to be wheels that can drive your wealth, the "99ers" are that wheel...

    If only the "99ers" would educate themselves on how to exercise their power instead of being drones...

    If this whole thing is about helping others; Why not argue that the police use the money that is confiscated from drug bust and donate it to the less fortunate; Why force the fortunate to help the less fortunate?
    Sorry, you basically already said it. If we can't rep each other, then a high five will do:

    I didn't break down the other forms of government though, which seems to be one of OP's problems...
