    First, start by wiping your brain for the notion that the lower class are just jealous. That should free up your mind on why huge income inequality is such a bad thing.
    What's freightening, is that tax cuts hurt the middle and lower classes.

    Issues of shipping logistics aside, it would be nice to see some evidence or theory of how that is.

    Did you just make that up ?
    Money is defined as something that:

    1. Is a store of value, which means people can save it and use it later
    2. Is a unit of account, that is, provide a common base for prices; or
    3. Is a medium of exchange, something that people can use to buy and sell from one another.

    This informational video may help you, Fenton.

    that LITERALLY has NOTHING to do with the point I asked.


    Keep trying though. Maybe your list of copy pasta strawmen points in your notepad txt file will eventually converge to a relevant response. I'd put higher odds on the infinite monkeys theorem playing out faster though.
