Though I dont agree with the arguments the left makes about wealth inequality my study of history shows when the gap becomes too great between haves and have nots it raises the potential for violence and rebellion in a society. You can look all the way back to the ancient Greeks and see this.
Now the question is what do you do about this fact. I dont really have an answer and Ive been thinking about it for a long time.
There is a biblical reference for having a jubilee year every once in awhile. I think that may have probably helped reduce the potential for what you’re talking about.
