RICH PEOPLE SHOULD PAY MORE TAXES
Since we are all living in modern nation states, the question of paying taxes is relevant for all of us. One of the fundamental roles of state is its re-distributive function. In order to redistribute the wealth, people have to pay taxes which generate the revenue of state. The problem arises when we start to discuss how much every citizen will pay.
Basically, there are three types of tax systems.
First, progressive system of taxes means that the more you earn, the more you contribute on taxes. Second, proportional tax system means that the state imposes the same rate of taxation regardless of income. Third, regressive tax system is the opposite of progressive system. That means the more you earn the less you contribute to running of the state.
The question of paying taxes touches upon the value of fairness.
Fairness itself is a value. It is not measurable object. Therefore it is more abstract concept of our personal values. I am very glad that both speakers in the debate discuss the question of fairness in their papers. You can evaluate their arguments in discussion forum below the text.
The second problem which is situated in both papers is the issue of state spending. Marine, affirmative speaker, claims that the state spends its money in useful areas of public. On the other hand, Michele, opposition speaker, claims that state spending is inefficient and corrupt. Well again, it is up to you to evaluate the arguments.
