One of your better stories. Thanks.
I think the best tool in a capitalist society to determine morality would be to eliminate all of the corruptions and smoky rooms of the income tax code. Ironically, the best progressive proposal to do that is the FairTax proposal, which is mostly supported by Republicans. Democrats only need to negotiate the rate to protect the environment and keep wealth local and close to the Earth, and raise the prebate enough to provide UBI and health care (not through insurance corporations).
The recent story about how the rich stole 50 trillion dollars from everyone else ignores how that 50 trillion dollars should have stayed in the ground in the first place.
I've been trying to vote progressive for a while, but the Democrats make it harder all of the time by sliding into the middle of the road and getting run over by zealots of both sides.
