"We"? It's an analysis that must incorporate the nature of class differences to be sound. The wealthy are undoubtedly not taxed to a sufficient extent; the realities of diminishing marginal utility provide an obviously rational justification for taxing them more...and tax, contrary to popular belief, is integral in the maintenance of capitalism.
Taxes are not the problem. The problem is what happens to the money once the Fed takes it.
I thought it was Leftists who wanted punitive taxation. Anarchists aren't supposed to support such authoritarian things
Taxation is a necessary element if you want to maintain capitalism. I'd be content to eliminate capitalism and "punitive" taxation along with it, but progressive taxation is merely a purely rational policy, as it incorporates consideration of diminishing marginal utility.
