The problem are not that men.

The problem are all the heirs that spend a lot in luxury and enviromental
prolematic stuff and do not produce anything, but continue to receive rent
for generations.

Once I read a book from  a far right extremist, he says that we live in a
socialist word, because from ten commands that the first socialist congress
in the history approves, only one is not in effect:
    Abolition of inheritance.

I often think that if only that "socialist" rule applied, but all other
rules are completly liberal, we could have a better world.
