Egotism,  it is a problem that cuts across all levels and layers of society.

You can keep collecting more revenue, but if all we do is pass it on to private corporations, then it's not going to have the effect you are imagining. 

It is your neo-liberal agenda that has put us in this pretty pass of kleptocracy, angus.  Had we never allowed 'free trade', de-unionization, and instead moved further towards progress (nationalization of industries, etc.) instead of away from it since the 70s, we would have political control of 'private property' instead of the rich controlling the State (and us).
