While I love Thomas Sowell. I want to edit this quote. ‘most of what they saved up’ and ‘rather than to their heirs?’. That seems more inclusive. Pretty sure girls can save as well.
In any event. No. I can’t explain why this is. It seems like a total ‘Dick move’, double taxation and just… did I say ‘Dick move’ already? Well lets just underscore that for effect.
Its likely because the dead just lie there. And take it. Instead of rising up to feast on the living in a vengeful night of… well… vengeance.
My strategies to counter this eventuality are two pronged (I mean taxation as opposed to the zombie apocalypse)
- Don’t ever die. Or
- Don’t have anything the government can take from me at the point of my demise.
Both of which are quite tricksy.
Or we could you know… vote. And change bad laws. I have more faith in the not dying part of my strategy.
