"Income inequality is an inherent condition....

It seems to me that unequal income distribution
is an inevitable consequence of industrial commerce. I have known people who thought water should not run downhill. I know many people who are dissatisfied with the world and with the way society functions. Too bad." -- Pro Commerce: Really rich like a Ponderosa

Your Say

Teddy Kennedy perfectly summed up Utopian Socialism during his eulogy of Robert F. Kennedy:

"Some men see things that are and ask why. I see see things that never were and ask why not."

All it takes is for one childish twit to imagine a magical place that has never existed and the rest of us will be squeezed, bent, stapled, and mutilated to make that magic place a reality.

It isn't limited to "industrial commerce". Wherever in times and places in history there have been markets, whether industrial or agrarian or between hunter-gatherers, whether capitalist or otherwise, there has always been inequality of income and wealth. Some people just work harder than others and/or have more cupidity than others. It's built into human nature.
