    seems fair. the top 0.01% are paying way, way more for public services than they personally use.

    even at those percentages, somebody earning 1 million a year will be paying way more in tax than somebody working in McDonalds. You realise that the vast majority of public funding comes from the top 5% of income earners, right ?

    Lots of societies function just fine with lower tax rates than Canada. They tend to be societies that intervene early when they see somebody is growing up to be a delusional moocher.

    there are a wide range of tax rates, but some hold zero as the ideal; some nations achieve this, but few want to live where this goal is achieved.

    Nobody has proposed zero taxation here. The person who made the video is incensed that tax rates have become relatively flat, and thats hard for a rational person to get angry about.

    Isnt there an argument that they wouldn't have all that wealth if it wasnt for public services? The less they pay into them the worse off ultimately it will be for them?

    cost of running a civilized country exceeds what an average individual can pay, experiments in reducing cost have been complete failures so the only option available is progressive taxation.
