Too Much

I’ve always thought that so-called “progressive taxation” and “death tax” schemes against the rich were inherently unfair. Why should those who have done well financially be forced to pay a higher percentage than those who haven’t? Yet after flipping through the August Town & Country, I’m open to having my mind changed. Some people really do have too much money. It’s not the wealth that I despise. Wealth is good, in itself. It’s the priorities and values that it engenders in some people. Is self-indulgence on trivia what life is all about for these folks?

Ugh.
