"Given"?  All property except Baltic?  95% of the bank?  What does that represent?  What is the analogy that this is trying to make?  It doesn't seem very well thought-through.


I think the graphic author's point is that the 1% have a highly disproportionate share of the nation's wealth, while the conservatives among blame the poor for being poor.

And my point is that you Magats swallow the DJT bullshit like it's a bon-bon.

Nothing written on the image makes that point.  So it is poorly written.  That is my point.

Do poor people carry no blame for their predicament across the board?

Weird name calling.  OK.

So are you agreeing with the stated claim that poor people haven't succeeded is because they are lazy?

And if you don't like the quality of the graphic, perhaps you should contact the creator thereof.

That isn't the stated claim.  The stated claim is that this is what "conservatives" think.  I don't agree with that generalization.

To a small extent, I agree.

And the best possible solution is to cut regulation, licensing, and zoning.

Let people expand the board. Open up new areas for development (both metaphorically and literally). Don't let the state and their crony capitalist partners dictate the rules of the game.
  

If FaceBook memes and twitter accounts can sway elections, then either accept it as the new reality or let's figure out a new form of government. Because democracy is therefore unfit in the modern age.

We tried less regulation. Back in the 19th century. It wound up with a few robber barons accumulating huge wealth and power, trusts, and monopolies. It was not good, and God Bless Teddy Roosevelt for putting an end to the worst abuses. Less regulation would only make the current state of inequity worse. Of course, it has to be right kind of regulation, and we need to elect honest people to our legislatures and government executive offices.

Funny, I don't see myself as your errand boy in this matter. For one thing, the graphic does not displease me as much as it seems to displease you. Again, if you want it changed, contact the creator yourself. Or are you one of the lazy ones?

Cutting regulations, licenses and zoning would make it even harder for the poor guy to succeed

Government is supposed to be for all people, not just the po'.

There are many reasons for the po' being po'. Laziness is definitely a big one.

Another reason is lack of incentive. Why try to earn your wealth when government keeps giving you handouts?

Also, a lot of people simply don't care about being rich. I'm one of them. Not everyone has the desire to be a millionaire or billionaire. A lot of people are simply appreciative and content with what they have.

How, then, do you define success?
