"No. You could've just gotten your money by developing some new financial scheme that helps no one but wall street sleazebags."
Or I could have gotten my money as a porn producer, or marijuana farmer, or megachurch pastor, or(gasp!) hedge fund manager, or any other profession that you disapprove of. but the bottom line is the money I made was freely given in return for a good or service.
"But you got it in a society that paid to keep you safe, unpoisoned, and countless other contributions that later enabled you to come up with your money earning scheme."
But here's the thing. You seem to think that the high income earner owes more to society than the low income earner, despite the fact that they were provided with the very same protections. So you'll need to explain the disconnect in a way that's rational, as opposed to one that is intended to appeal to emotion.
"If you invented a product, you shipped it on roads society provided, with workers society educated. "
If I buy a product, it is shipped to me on roads that society provided, with workers that society educated. In fact the product is more valuable to me than it is the inventory, proven by the fact that he was willing to sell it.
So why is it that you would leverage a greater share of the responsibility for shipping on the party for whom the transaction was less valuable?
