6. It is the only way to ever climb out of this hole short of radical change.

It would seem that those who are largely married to the status quo would have to seriously consider that to make any kind of a go at maintaining the system and avoiding severe disruptions and upheaval that wealth must be taxed to restore any sort of balance and to mitigate over collection of resources which effectively removes them from the economy resulting in a stagnation of circulation.

What we are doing is insane, eventually even for the wealthy. Eventually, the whole system will take on a level of entropy that their accumolation will be worthless because the system will break under the weight of the imbalance. Sure, there will be a season of lordly power but it will eventually collapse because of the inate ever decreasing value of the pie since growth must come from games, rigging, and scams.
