Yes, unfortunately, this *is* the way it's done, isn't it? So it's entirely
possible for the lower and lower-middle-class majority to simply to take it
*all* from the wealthier majority.  So easy, and so likely.  Thus
destroying our economy's capital base and ensuring permanent class hatred.
Sound familiar?

Given your rather dark view of human nature, Richard, it surprises me that
you'd be so uncritical of a system such as this.
