Should all wealth and possessions be claimed by the state when you die?Watch
It isn't being blown though it is being invested into goods and services which creates jobs and more wealth. So if anything this would increase investment in the world's economy tenfold rather than let it stagnate.
I can pretty much promise you that people blowing all their life savings won't be spending it down the local high street. It will be foreign holidays and sports cars. Not good for our own economy.
No. If I work hard all my life to earn my money I want to choose who it goes to myself. I will have earned that choice.
Well they shouldn't run my life. What's free will for other than to make our own choices? Following laws is one thing, but getting to decide if what you've earned should go to the people you love is another. It's about making sure they can live a bit more comfortably thanks to me.
No, people should be able to pass on their self-improvement work to their offspring. Giving it to the state (or I should say, having it taken by the state) would be equivalent to flushing it down the toilet, for all the good it would do.
so the government takes everything you ever owned away when you die?! are you ****ing kidding me?! so if I died and wanted to give what I legitimately worked my whole life for to my children, the government would steal it from me and give it to somebody else? we already get almost taxed to death already! why should anybody have to pay taxes for dying? NO!
Inheritance tax is an affront to human decency. Curse the evil person who came up with the idea that the State should mug the families of a recently deceased person. Disgusting.
No way, absolutely not. It's a person's right to leave their stuff to their loved ones if they so wish. If a law was passed saying that wealth and possessions should be claimed by the state when you die, I'd move abroad.
Your right to do what you want with your money is determined by the government, you have no innate rights as all rights derive from government legislation. If the government says you don't have the right to buy an automatic rifle then you don't have that right. If the government says you don't have the right to enrich uranium in your house then you don't have that right. If the government says you don't have the right to pass on wealth when you die then you don't have that right.
