: : The point is, it doesn't really matter. People will be poor, and people will be rich, but past a certain point overall living conditions really depend on the economy. When the economy is good, everybody lives well. When its bad, the rich live and the poor struggle. But the economy is good! So why complain?
: Okay, fine. I'll go along with that. But now you have to agree that for rich people in a capitalist society there no link between work and performance, right? I mean, let me hear you say it--it's not about work, it's about property.
So if there is no link between work and performance, how come their knockin' down big bucks? They must be doing something right. Of course if your defining 'work' as turning a wrench on an assembly line while ignoring the creative assembling of materials and peoples and money to make new things available to consumers, then your right and I'm wrong.
