Where does all this lead, you might ask.

Economically, Progressivism, Socialism and where those lead (Totalitarianism), all destroy individualism and Freedom. Any person who is unhappy with their circumstance because someone else has more has two choices for a remedy. First, the individual can take it upon themselves to build something to lift them our of their situation. That is build a career, build on their education, or build a following for a product or service they provide. The second choice is to tear something down with the hope of changing their situation. Tear down the individual how has built something, tear down their community by demanding support, or tear down the whole system that offers them the best opportunity to better their life condition.

Tearing down is offered as a glimmering promise by those who are naive or those who seek the destruction of the individual. The promise is that there are those who have “your share” of the riches in society. The hope to excite the lazy and the uninformed to support their efforts with the hope they will be rewarded with money, property, and love. None of these promises are ever fully delivered. The reason is these promises cannot be delivered upon. If a person has a large portion of their effort devalued, confiscated, or taxed away they will either find someway to produce without being notices, move to where their efforts are appreciated, or they will not produce because the effort is unrewarded.

Then of course people will decry those who inherit money, a little or a lot. Any person who would want to be taxed 50% on their inheritance is either irrational (believing the government can better spend their money), or dishonest in their saying so. Any person who believes Progressivism, Socialism and what it leads to have not committed enough thought to the prospects of this proposition. These forms of social control lead to the destruction of society, laying open a nation for subjugation to foreign influence.

The reason they do this is either they are ill-prepared for life or they are so out of personal control they seek to control others. A person who can control themselves does not seek to control others. They wish to control themselves and through their efforts benefit themselves and those, as they decide, around them.
