    Yeah, I heard that rich fuck argument before. But if they move away when they have to contribute, they are of no value anyway. Just make a law that they have to pay up as long as they are citizens, like in the US. Problem solved.

    There are a number of countries which offer their citizenship in exchange for investment. And they are not all shit holes.

    But there is even more important matter. You propose to virtually discriminate one group of people and to solve some problems of another group thanks to that.

    When people are talking about the rich they often have in mind the bankers or financial traders or other 'fat cats'. Sometimes they mention the descendants of rich families who did nothing to gain their fortunes.

    But I often imagine IT sector. It is the field where many common people made their fortunes purely thanks to their intellectual and hard working abilities.

    So, if say Peter founded some company several years ago and now is gaining 3 million dollars of net income annually, will be he considered rich and have to share his fortunes with the poor?

    He could give two away and his life would still be fantastic.

    It is your opinion and it can not coincide with his.
    First of all, you want to discriminate people based on their income. Why Peter should give 66% of his income while Michael will be giving only 20%?

    Second. These money Peter will give to the state rather than invest in his company and hire new employees. I personally don't believe that state bureaucrats are the number one in efficiency of using money.

    And third. I think that such people like Peter will choose to move to another country and develop their business there. But 'fat cats' will stay at their home country and find a way with the help of well paid lawyers to 'optimize' their taxes. Actually, they already are good in it now.

    Any typist can do what Peter does - and even faster. Why don´t give 3 million to every typist?
    Even harder is the job of the asphaltist. He deserves 10 million every year.
    Peter is just in luck, he can be lucky when he keeps one million for himself to waste freely on internet porn and chips.

    It is a bit of funny to compare a typist with a programmist.
    I don't know whether your stance is popular in Germany. Frankly, I hope it is. I am not that particular anti-German, but strong Germany isn't of interest for some Eastern European countries.

    Programmers are not unusual and the most common job in some federal states. It is no longer elitist and Peters success is based on his idea, not skill.
    The occupation is also subjected to outsourcing.

    1 million French in the streets protesting? Really?

    And yet Americans have the gall to call the French "weak"....when it's Americans who have chosen to belly up and surrender their liberty

    Good for the French. They apparently have REAL patriots.
