Is the extra Inherritance tax that is to be paid really a bad thing given the huge social and generational divides that our Corporate dictatership state has now created?
If the cash was to be redistributed to those who most need it, or spent on improving the Nations infrastructure (like new housing) as it is supposed to be, (rather than on Imperialist crusades against brown people) then why would this be such a bad thing?
Its not as if home owners have done anything to earn the windfall gains made on the rise in value of their pile of bricks is it? They have simply gained from the crooked inflationary policy of the BOE/OECD. Why shouldn't the money be reclaimed by the State?
After all, the State IS 'us', isn't it?
