    When you shift from saying, "We should all kick-in to help out less fortunate" to "I'd rather take away someone's ability to afford a luxury", you are no longer giving of your own assets, but instead deciding you get to choose what is the proper amount of assets that someone else should retain.

    And as far as who benefits most from society, I doubt that the rich benefit hundreds of times more from the roads and fire departments than I do.  They certainly pay many many times my taxes.

    I do think proportial taxation is fair, but when it becomes so disproportional that one class of people is simply voting themselves shares of another class's assets it is no longer shared.
