Billionaires should not exist. That level of wealth can only ever be achieved by exploiting and stealing the labor of regular people. The cut off line should stop at a million dollars.

>>53006552 >>53006579 70% of Americans make $50k or less per year, and for millennials a lot less. I'm being generous about the cut off line you retarded bootlicker.

>>53006631 does it ever occur to you that the marginal product of 1 unit of labor with nothing else is always zero, or that risk arises as a consequence of asymmetric information?

>>53006631 have you ever been around other people, anon? have you ever seen how fucking useless most of them are? why would it surprise you that their labor isn't worth much on the open market?

Consider the following: I have a million dollars in a country where it's not legal to have more than a million dollars, and I have several billion dollars in offshore bank accounts and investments that the government cannot touch. So now not only are you getting nothing, but you also have to deal with most of our money being invested into the economies of other countries.

>>53006631 So what if I want to own something that costs more than a million dollars to make? Are you saying there should be things I should not be allowed to own, even if I'm able to earn the money to purchase it? That's a very unamerican sentiment.

>>53006700 Both of those problems are why capital has to be compensated in the form of profit, AKA why people need to be able to get rich in order for us to have a functioning economy.

>>53007020 This is the problem with discussing socialism online. Most people define socialism based off of what their critics say it is, rather than what it actually is. Things like welfare and a progressive income tax are not so much like a cure to a disease, but a painkiller, used to control the effects so as not to risk spurring the effected into searching for a permanent cure.

>>53005933 >>53006631 Agreed entirely, anyone who disagrees was born wealthy and doesn't want the world to change despite happiness only being reserved for 1% of the population. Literally what the fuck.
