The Real Party Line"Some people screw up or are unlucky. We're here to ensure they end up the same as you who donât screw up or are luckier. We can't say they are in any way culpable, so we blame either the system or you who are better off. The best way to level the playing field is to tax all we can, take our percentage, and redistribute the rest. Lots get hired to administer to even more. The rules don't apply to ourselves, who are wealthy but not the targeted culpable. We know privately all this is not sustainable, but assume the better off will find a way to save themselves and thus us, before we bankrupt ourselves -- after we are gone. And we don't care really whether this is always legal, or fair, or workable, because we know it is moral and we are far more moral people than you." -- Victor Hanson -- Works and Days » As Predictable As the Sun Rising
