Imagine there was a class. After the first test, everyone in the class got the same grade. Everyone got the same grade, not because everyone did equally as well, but because the professor took the grades from the students who did well, and gave them to the students who did poorly. This made everyone equal, but did that make it fair? Do you think the students who did poorly would want to study harder to raise their grades, if they were just going to get the points from higher scoring students anyway? Do you think the students who scored well would study as hard, if they knew that their points would just be taken away from them and given to the students who didn’t study? This is what high taxes and wealth distribution does. It is the reason why socialism cannot sustain itself, and always fails.
