I recommend the movieHarrison Bergeron <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmEOI5zwFMM> as a demonstration of the ill effects that follow attempts to generate equality in a population.

    I do agree with this. The leftist idea of distributing richness
    cannot work for many reasons. But richness must be based on
    facts, and not on propaganda. Today we are living a perversion of
    capitalism, because too much investment are money stealing in
    disguise. The whole oil, and military industries, jail systems,
    and pharmaceutical industries are build on sands. It will
    crumbled down, and the sooner the better. But it will take time
    as the most of the middle class and banks are hostage (not always
    knowingly) of professional liars.

    I'm not sure what is meant by 'taxing the rich doesn't ultimately
    work'?  If it means it doesn't produce equality and prosperity,
    I'd agree.  But in the U.S. the tax rate paid by the rich has been
    higher (even much higher) in the past and at the same time there
    was prosperity and economic growth.  Now the rich (by which I mean
    people who live comfortably solely on their investments) pay a
    lower tax rate than the poorest working person.  So 'taxing the
    rich' can certainly work in the sense of fairness.
