    I’m not sure income inequality is a particularly good pole to hang a flag from. I don’t see an inherent conflict between having everyone brought up to a minimum level of security and comfort and still having the rich and the super-rich.

    I don’t believe most of the people in the top wealth tier actively want there to be poor on the streets or working-class folks worrying about eviction or people bankrupted by illness. Making the rich the targets just makes them into very powerful enemies.

    Class warfare is as productive of hate as any other kind of warfare. ANY kind of hate is socially counterproductive and morally dubious – even if someone has been propagandized into thinking that the “2%ers” deserve to be hated.
