You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods. Except when your neighbor has stuff that you don’t.

Because they are projecting, and they want to dehumanize and disenfranchise people who disagree with them.

Wealth inequality is not a bad thing. It’s not even a good thing. It is a GREAT thing. Wealth inequality, in a free market economy is the engine that drives prosperity, innovation and productivity. The worst thing you can do is condemn everyone to the same level of wealth. Why take chances? Why start new companies and industries? Dreams of becoming rich made America the ‘land of opportunity’.

Why Democrats Are Obsessed With Wealth Inequality TOTALITARIAN GOVERNMENT

"Wealth inequality' and "inequity" in general are just part of the long line of phony means and phony excuses to attain their ultimate goal of global totalitarian government.

It is interesting to note that The Law of Moses contains two special years which, had anyone ever implemented them, would greatly reduce wealth inequality: 1. the year of release every seven years where debts are forgiven and indentured servitudes are canceled, and 2. the Jubilee year every fifty years, where everyone is returned to their original possessions.

DEU15:01 At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release. DEU15:02 And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’s release. DEU15:03 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;  DEU15:04 Save when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it:  DEU15:05 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.

God. KING JAMES BIBLE TOUCH - KJV (Kindle Locations 8485-8492). Kindle Edition.

LEV25:11 A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed. LEV25:12 For it is the jubile; it shall be holy unto you: ye shall eat the increase thereof out of the field. LEV25:13 In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. LEV25:14 And if thou sell ought unto thy neighbour, or buyest ought of thy neighbour’s hand, ye shall not oppress one another:  LEV25:15 According to the number of years after the jubile thou shalt buy of thy neighbour, and according unto the number of years of the fruits he shall sell unto thee:  LEV25:16 According to the multitude of years thou shalt increase the price thereof, and according to the fewness of years thou shalt diminish the price of it: for according to the number of the years of the fruits doth he sell unto thee.

To me, the democrats obsession against people having wealth, and trying to take it away, smacks of common thieves. And evil. I'm sick of having to lock away my stuff, whether it be a safe, my home, car or bicycle. 99 out of 100 times a thief trying to take your stuff is a democrat (or liberal non-democrat). F'n thieves should be incarcerated for life. (Yeah, I've had cars and bikes stolen as well as stuff.)

I don't care if other people have more stuff, more power to them. I work hard so I can get the stuff I want. If I want it, I'll work harder or satisfy myself that it is unobtainable and move on. Wish I had a yacht or sailboat but I'll never have one, although I have ridden on others' boats who do and admire them for it.

I have decades’ long experience working at a very famous hospital.I did reasonably well,worked hard,made a decent salary,was able to live a comfortable (quite comfortable,in fact) life...but never anywhere near “wealthy”.
I rubbed shoulders with hundreds and hundreds of physicians and surgeons while there...many of whom were famous enough to appear on national TV.

These physicians and surgeons all made very,very good livings.Huge homes,the wealthiest towns,Mercedes (or better).Comparing my comfortable life to their *very* comfortable lives I see that they had more formal education than me,I see that from the day they first entered medical school they worked *far* harder and *far* more hours than me and had far,*far* greater responsibilities than me.

As a result I don’t resent them having been more prosperous than me...*noticeably* more prosperous.

There’s a somewhat famous guy on the web (can’t recall his name) who once posted on his twitter account something like “why should a brain surgeon earn more than a janitor?” IIRC his post was thought to be tongue-in-cheek...but who can be sure?

The Democrats are the Pirates of the Caribbean. Plundering and pillaging is what they do.

Not one mention of climate change. Not that important after all.

The mentality of a thief is “that should belong to me instead”. The mentality of a liberal is “that should belong to the government, and they should give it to me”. It’s not far from the mentality of a communist, which is “they should be dead, and their stuff given to me”.
