  • Redistribution of income is unjust. Why should we punish educated, hard-working, successful people with high salaries by imposing extra taxes on them? Besides, redistribution of income rewards not only the poorest of the poor, but also lazy slackers who shirk constantly and enjoy social welfare for nothing.
  • Redistribution of income gives wrong incentives. Taking money from the rich and giving it to the poor shows disrespect for education and hard work, which demotivates successful people, as their work is not being rewarded. Therefore, they will have no incentives to work in the future, not to mention starting new businesses or aiming for higher education and better jobs.
