: : 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?

: Food banks in the USA are reporting record demand in this "good" economy. The top 10% of the country owns 90% of the wealth. Coincidence? It's way past time to complain.

Another factoid; over 50% of tax reciepts come from the top 5% of wage earners. We've already got redistribution of wealth.
Sub-factoid; Give stuff away and people will take it. Give more stuff away and more people will take it.
