Debate: is a 'flat' or 'curved' tax more moral, practical, and lawful?
This debate is over the idea of weather a proportional flat tax (example: everyone pays 5% of their income) or a proportional curved tax (example: poor pay 0%, but rich pay 20%) is more moral, practical, and lawful.
I am taking the position that a flat tax is overall:
-More moral than a curved tax in most forms (income, land, inheritance)
-Produces more economic welfare than a curved tax, for classes both rich and poor
-And coincides better with established laws and the idea of democracy than a curved tax
Before any arguments are given, I would like to have at least one person to be arguing against.
