If for no other reason, and there are plenty more, the
rich should have to pay far more because they have
been privileged to live in a society that has allowed
them to earn obscene amounts of money and
extravagance. That is surely enough in itself. They
should be delighted to cough up.
And there are those among the rich who agree with
this. In fact, there were billionaires who lobbied
AGAINST doing away with the inheritance tax.
