I was taught in Infantry Basic Training at Fort Benning was that the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero.  In short, there is no such thing as a valid excuse. In spite of the clear record of the great and bloody failure of Communism the adherents of the doctrine continue to emit invalid noises in our general direction.

For example there have been calls for massive taxes on people with high incomes in order to fight "inequality." Let's step back and examine the larger picture.

Material inequality is the natural result of differences in the application of knowledge and labor in the production of goods and services.  The resulting in differences output have no adverse impact on actually productive people.

In fact there is no problem of material inequality.

That productive people will limit their income in order to limit tax liability never enters their minds.  The limitation of income reduces spending power and thus the ability to purchase the goods and services produced by others leads to the general impoverishment.  That their program has these and other negative effects on a people has no meaning to the Reds. 

And then there's the issue of the violation of rights by force.

The fact is that material inequality is simply an excuse for the use of force against the productive to support the parasites.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?
