    There are plenty of rich people who do lots of good with their wealth -- setting up foundations to fund non-profits or donating lots of money to charitable organizations. (Sure, they get a tax write-off but that goes with the territory.) And I think money diverted to foundations is already exempt from inheritance tax. Point out that difference and that should take care of any "hypocrisy" angle.

    Money is not the root of all evil; the love of money is. And what you do with your money is important.
