Why the hell can't you live without 200 grand you didn't do anything for? Money to pay for a sick loved one who can't take care of themselves is an entirely different matter than fully healthy people who do not need 200 grand.

I don't want (more) laws that legalise theft and ones that allow for state property appropriation.

Spread that wealth around if you please, see the prices of everything raise slightly and for it to mean essentially nothing. I'm sure big corporations will be happy when everyone rushes to buy that new expensive item they couldn't afford before.

Why do people still think that controlling the economy by force will help anybody but those who are already rich?

wtf are you talking about? I'm saying that's what she'll get when I pop my clogs. And if you think it's too much, then up yours. She's going to need a whole lot more. I just hope she goes first.

OMG please stop calling it theft. It's always theft with you. You were that kid who wouldn't share his Power Ranger toy during play time, weren't you? The entire reason you live in a society is to trade rights and money for security. You don't want to have your money stolen then go live in a cabin on a mountain, otherwise you owe the state/people for all those services you use. You want to drive a car? Then either pay for the road or build it yourself.

Oh for the love of Christ I'm saying that someone in that kind of need is a special exception.

Make Batlord in charge of knowing who needs what and what they are allowed to have. I'm sure he would make the right calls and it wouldn't collapse like every other socialist hellhole.

Obviously I was talking in a broader context. Inheritance being one element.

I imagine my first act of not letting rich kids keep their parents' wealth for no reason probably wouldn't break the country, but I've gone on record multiple times to say that people are too stupid to know how to govern themselves under any form of government. You're the one who seems to have faith in social Darwinism.

Good thing we're only talking about inheritances, then. Otherwise, you'd be overreacting with all this Batlord's socialist burger kingdom nonsense.

Nope, not at all. I don't have faith in a stateless society magically working. I do have faith that without government people would still strive to help those in need anyway, but there's no guarantee of that being flawless either.

The bigger question is whether or not the government should be able to take your property and give it to others. I'd say no, because ~theft~, but I didn't say it would solve all of our issues.
