If you want to argue that higher taxes are counterproductive to building a healthy economy that benefits everyone equally, go ahead and make that case. But don't hide behind false ideas of self-sufficiency and rose-colored glasses that filter out past injustice.

Spinning, I think you are trying to find an argument where none exists. I have never argued against higher taxes, and I find your argument of rose-colored glasses comical. Especially when you stated it is not about guilt or shaming descendants. Of course it is, you just can't come to terms with your own thoughts.

I never filter out past injustices, I just say so what, the past is the past. Acknowledge it and move on. If you choose to live in the past that is your problem not mine.
