The title seems self-explanatory, but just in case my oponent to be is of the school which regards the definition of art, for instance, controversial, I will define the terms.

Tommy.leadbetter

I keep hearing people all over the internet calling conservatives crazy, terrorists, Nazis, Fascists, Racists, etc. I have even heard people ignorantly compare them to ISIS.

Redistribution of Wealth

sconifer
Contra

Focusing first on your claim that the redistribution of wealth (or, more generally, resources) would somehow inherently destroy all incentive to work on the part of those from whom resources were taken, this is just patently untrue. It is a well-known historical fact of economics that, even when corporations are taxed at supposedly exorbitant rates (e.g., about 90% under FDR), American industry nevertheless thrives, CEOs still make out like bandits, the populace as a whole is no less likely to p...
