I'm unsure about all countries, however I know that my own (Canada), and plenty of European ones can charge you up to or over 50% income tax.
Communism is when the society controls the economic output. Well if they're charging 50% tax on your output, haven't the elite already achieved a
state of half-communism? In fact, you could go so far as to argue it's fully communist since the state is saying that you may keep the other 50%-
they're really controlling the other 50% by giving you the permission to keep that much from your Social Insurance contract or whatever similar card
you may have in your country. Feel free to discuss...
