You may not be surprised to hear I have a different view here and support a redistribution of wealth.
I hope I am correct in saying that we all live in democracies and so are ruled by our common consent, This is not the case in all countries or states but is certainly true of the UK where I live and the USA. Under such a system we elect politicisations to frame the laws, level of taxation and what that money is spent on.
When we disagree with their decisions we are free to protest and campaign against them and we have the opportunity to give someone else the power to somebody else or even stand for election our selves.
I am lucky in that while I would certainly not describe my self as rich I am well educated and financially comfortable. I don’t begrudge some of my earnings being used to help others less fortunate than me. You have said that its OK to tax people to pay for road maintenance but not to for example provide a hand=up for an homeless person to get them into a home and give them the chance to get back into work so with luck they can start to contribute to society. Why?
In the UK we have the National Health Service which offers free at the point of need health care to anybody who needs it. I could argue that I am fit and healthy so should not need to pay for it. So far I have put more into the NHS than I have taken out I hope this continues to be the case. However, I am very proud of the NHS and the people who work in it from the cleaners who keep the hospitals clean, nurses, doctors and thousands of others, too many to mention, who give me the confidence that if anything were to happen to me I will be looked after
A few years ago I was working from home, my daughters school was almost next door to my house and anywhere I needed to go to I could ride either mine or my daughters horse so did not directly benefit from road maintenance so would I be justified insisting I did not pay for it?
Clearly for me the answer is no, the state provides a safety net for those in need and the more fortunate amongst us pay to fund it. Why? Because while you or I may be lucky enough to have little need for support there is nothing to say that will always be the case. I could for example fall ill tomorrow and be unable to work again. If that were to happen I would happily accept that I would not be able to keep the horses, they are an indulgence I have because I like horses and can afford to keep them, I would hope though that the state would be able to assist as I needed. I am happy to contribute to the needs of others while I can
