A basic income tax: Asking everyone within a society to pay 10% BIT and dividing this amount through its population = Basic Income For One
I'm not a fan of flat taxes, for the reasons others have already stated on here. In the UK wealthier people pay 45% I don't think that figure should be reduced. I think all taxes should be based on income. Sales taxes unfairly affect the poorest in society, as it costs them a far higher proportion of their income. In the UK we pay VAT, which is meant for luxury items - products that people can live without. However we pay it on condoms, fuel, most foods, clothes, services... the list goes on! Something needs to be done to reduce the gap between rich and poor, but with the rich controlling everything why would they want to make that change?

Should degrees have "patches"?
A degree is meant to give you the skills to carry out the research yourself. If people are genuinely interested in what they studied and the area in which they work, there won't be any problem keeping up to date.
