Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

So, it's ok for the government to take what I earn by force to give it to another person?  Is that what your saying?

I work hard for what I earn. Why should my family have less just because someone thinks someone else should have more?  Indeed, this is the language of socialism. That what someone makes belongs to everyone else. Society can take what you make and give it to other people.  That sounds quite totalitarian to me.

Who gives a flying fuck if you think this is the language of socialism? What is your obsession with socialism?

If you believe you have what you have solely because you worked hard for it then you are far removed from reality. Why hasn't someone stolen it all?

Are you against taxation in general, or just in the case where it may be given to the 'undeserving' poor?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
