>I heard someone point out it's not the wealth the super rich have accumulated that's the issue, being rich is awesome, everyone wants to be rich, it's the opportunity for economic equality that's the issue everyone has. I think he called it 'economic mobility'. The opportunities just aren't the same for everyone, which is the problem. And if we don't fix it, it will only get worse until it reaches a breaking point.

The opportunities are there. I grew up in appalachia and no-one in my family had gone to college before me. I eventually took a PhD and am publishing a new book. You don't really mean the opportunities aren't there, you just advocate equality of outcomes. The rich generally control more wealth because they have demonstrated an ability to control it better. Many of the rich who didn't, became poor. The fastest way for humanity to kill ourselves off is to regress to the mean.
