Deathbeforedishonour

I hold that the most moral rate of estate taxation is a near 100% takings as is feasible to have. My opponent and I both agree that taxation is a form of theft, and will likely be arguing from that as a starting point.First round is acceptance and definitions, no semantics please.Definitions:Moral - http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/moral - I find 1, 3, 4, and 5 here acceptable.Estate Tax - The tax levied on a person upon their death.Near-total - As close to 100% as can reasonably be achi...
