Because when you get right down to the ground about it... fair is not ever rationally associated with economics, taxation, govt., etc. It's all about power. Those that have it use it. Those who don't have it have to take the dumping of those who do have it... until they can get power. Then, the bottom rail goes up on top and the top rail gets a taste of living lower down. That's just the way it is. And fair is not remotely involved in the process, one way or the other.
Good post.
