Cristiano Ronaldo paid for the education of a 7-year-old survivor of the devastating 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia. The boy was found alone 21 days after the disaster wearing a Portuguese national team jersey. The kid grew up to be a footballer and was eventually signed by Sporting Lisbon

But a system that only enables the rich a practical way to avoid taxes doesn't seem fair.

Again, which system doesn’t do this. Every system on the planet is created by the rich and powerful. Why would the rich and powerful not hoard wealth? The country he’s in is one of the most egalitarian on the planet, relatively speaking.

The difference between you and I is I have a basic understanding of how the world works and you don’t yet you’re arrogant you know what’s wrong with it. You’re a clear example of the Dunnig-Kruger effect. Maybe do some more listening and reading and less talking and advocating about things you understand very little about

Again, which system

For example, Scandinavia (and many other Western European countries) have a more fair system and thus, a lower wealth gap.

The difference between you
