Warren Buffett has the same philosophy. I don’t know if he’ll leave anything to his heirs. I believe he once espoused a sentiment that when a wealthy man with no spouse dies, all of his wealth should go to the government.........

Warren Buffett doesn’t have to leave anything to his children. They all have nice fat trust funds. He looks great saying he is giving all his money away, but he made sure his kids were well taken care of.

He's a hypocrite.... he has put his money into a "non profit" foundation with jobs for life for his spawn.

Am I angry or jealous...nope. He's done good by me, when I started making a little money I bought 5 shares of Berkshire Hathaway back in '83.

He's just a man, he's an opportunist and plays the system. I have no clue what his "true" beliefs are other than what he does with his money. Charlie Munger is actually an important part of Buffet's success.

Buffet has said that his kids won’t be poor by any stretch of the imagination, but they will get a very modest inheritence considering how much money he has.

Yes but an important fact is, Buffet did this by CHOICE whereas Socialism does it by LEGISLATION and Buffet supports Socialism.
