An open letter to Paul Graham
Rick Webb

I don’t disagree, I’m an advocate of a progressive income tax. But I am starting to question just how useful the state is, in terms of reducing this inequality. 
We’ve been fighting the ‘war on poverty’ for decades now, some success, but compared to the amount spent, not as much as we can reasonably expect.
I think there is much more to this problem than just a shortage of public money.
