You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
"Half full or half empty doesn't matter. What matters is, you've only got half a glass...so what are you going to do about it?" - Me
Redistribution from homeowners to lenders and other financial institutions making record profits, paying our record bonuses, under regulations they spent decades shaping with $billions spent lobbying and campaigning. But it was all the fault of someone else.....And you should remember why it was done in the first place. It was massive and unprecedented Government intervention for the purpose of mandating " equality " and " fairness "
It was fundamentally redistribution and boy did it backfire.
All Progressive redistributive initiatives backfire.
Sheesh, it should be obvious the "equity and fairness" stuff is just the bones thrown to the proles as a small price for what the financial behemoths wanted. Like the cost of tipping the valet at a five star resort.

It isn't a fact and so your argument falls apart from there.And that fact debunks the concept people refer to when they quip "economics isn't zero sum".

Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
