Your statement shows how nothing ever changes. These were exactly the same points being made by the Trotskyites and Marxists in 1917 when the "proletariat" decided to confiscate everything the rich had and kill them. Something like 30 million people were killed by their own government in the next 50 years. This sinister hate for those who have accumulated wealth can lead to very bad things. It starts with the assumption that economics is a zero sum game, which it is not. The very rich can prosper greatly while the middle class also prospers. In fact, the middle class cannot prosper if the rich do not since most jobs are made by the rich. Like I said earlier, shove the rich down and see what happens to the middle class average lifestyle. It will go down.
This graph gives us a very clear picture of what is happening in America. The right graph is the important one. The top 5% control 72% of the financial assets. The top 10% control 84% of the financial assets.
Middle class income is completely stagnent, middle class debt has been increasing for decades. I am all for equality in taxation, but right now its not equal at all.
