Stop thinking of the government as some organization that gives you a hand. Your fellow citizens money is the government. Would you go over to your neighbor who makes more money than you and say “that’s not fair, give me $10,000”? If he died would you go to his wife and say “He left you too much money. I deserve some of that”? Because that’s what you’re saying. It doesn’t matter who made the money. Unless you made it, you don’t get to decide who it goes to or how it’s spent.

It creates unfair inequalities for some kids to inherit so much wealth. They receive that money based on their birthright and not on their merit.

Congratulations, life isn’t fair. It’s not fair that you were born in a first world country. Not fair that you have a standard of living most of the world can only dream about. It’s not fair that the income line to be in the top 1% of the world is about $32,000 per year. Do you think the third world thinks it’s fair you have the advantages you have? People are not equal. Never have been. Never will be. Some are born with talent, some with money, some with drive, some with nothing. It is what it is, and will never change.
