“We can not achieve sustainable justice without taxing the rich their fair share. The reality is that introducing a wealth tax wouldn’t even alter the quality of life for the richest in our societies. It is my responsibility as a wealth inheritor to challenge the relationship the rich (including myself) have to power and control. We have an unnecessary scarcity mindset that must be altered in order for all members of society to achieve a higher quality of life.”
