But the capitalists will say "wait, wait, wait, people can earn as much money as they want and its evil to regulate earnings, that socialism!!!!"

These people miss the obvious fact that there are non-socialist arguments for limiting wealth accumulation.  Key-word non-socialist.

Inequality is a fact.

But there are more important forms of inequality than wealth-inequality, that our society does not recognize, for example, the inequality that exists between the natural "castes."

Our society doesn't even recognize this inequality exists, but the fact is, some people are born only to work with their hands, some to work with money, some to rule, and some to think and pray.

A correctly organized society makes room for these mentalities to each work within their own sphere while interfering with the spheres of the others as little as possible.  Medieval Europe was governed this way.

But the most well-governed cast society was of course Hindu India.

In a well-governed society money would not buy power and would in fact be mostly excluded from the political/ruling process.  It would be recognized that business is a relatively lower form of activity.

The thing about non-socialist, populist or conservative arguments is they share a similar weakness with socialist ideas and ultimately fall to the same counters.

The real problem isn't inequality, but rather the poverty on the low end of the income spectrum.  The causes of that aren't mysterious - the failure of government schools, the export of American manufacturing, the import of low-wage black market labor via the illegal alien invasion, the displacement of workers by the rise of robotics and AI.

You are right Jasmine. If you want to live the good life you go after it the right way. Education or trade, work hard and right. Always look for that step up, then the next step up. Do it right and you will be recognized and rewarded. If you are real smart and lucky and invent something all people want, you will be living on Front Street.
Without the ability to do well because it is wrong to make more than someone else, who would waste their time making things better. We would still be riding around on horses and lucky if we could earn enough for that black powder rifle to shoot dinner.

It has to be accurate and not at all manipulated because the graphic is sooo pretty.  It's like a bumblebee!  And bumblebees make me happy.

The question isn't whether or not we're descended from monkeys.  The question is, when are we going to stop descending?

We are talking about this government, aren't we?  If we were any other kind of government like China or NK, we would not even be having this discussion because you would not even be allowed to own a gun.
