Are there any controls on the kibbutz leaders those who are "more powerful"? Can the people who voted them in would they be able to get rid of them if things are not going right? Are they there whether or not they do a job that benefits the kibbutz?
Consider the statement: If the middle class continues to shrink until there is no longer a middle class. The rich will have to pay additional taxes to sustain programs needed for the poor.
If the rich are already getting tax refunds, even though they are not paying taxes. How will they help do that?
How can the rich help the poor by paying additional taxes if there is no middleclass to pay taxes. Will all the burden of paying more taxes be passed down on to the poor?
