  • Pretty much everyone in the US is in the top 33% globally. Also, pretty much everyone who has a computer is in the top 5% globally.
    • What conclusion is this arguing against?
  • up-arrow debaticon Anti-taxers only apply this argument selectively.
    • up-arrow debaticon Objector only raises this claim where Pro-Taxer is not rich.
      • down-arrow debaticon Umm, but Pro-Taxer is rich when compared to those in Africa.
        • up-arrow debaticon This does not contradict the claim to which it responds.
        • up-arrow debaticon Anti-taxer is generally rich by comparison to pro-taxer.
    • up-arrow debaticon This implies an unequal burden, i.e. the Pro-Taxer must empty their wallet before any rich people would need to contribute, rather than each contributing according to their ability.
    • up-arrow debaticon The principle of next-rung assistance tends to maximize income inequality.
      • down-arrow debaticon The states' bias towards inflation increases income inequality.
        • up-arrow debaticon An inflationary policy has only minimal effect on inequality.
        • up-arrow debaticon Pro-taxers are not necessarily in favor of inflation.
        • up-arrow debaticon Even if true, this does not contradict the assertion; it merely offers another mechanism which may be playing a part as well.
