In the News (from CNN): “A group of two dozen millionaires stormed Capitol Hill on Wednesday, demanding lawmakers raise their taxes.
“‘We want to pay more taxes,’ said California millionaire Doug Edwards, a former marketing director for Google (GOOG, Fortune 500). ‘If you’re fortunate, and you make more than a million dollars a year, you ought to pay more taxes.’
“The millionaires want Congress to allow the tax cuts passed during the George W. Bush administration to expire. Some want higher taxes generally.”
My Comment: “It is better to give willingly, proudly, and less than have them take everything,” the instinct of survival says. But this will not help. The only thing that can help is a quick investment of their funds in educating the public about life in the new world of moderate and reasonable consumption and the fostering of unity of people towards similarity with an integral world.
