    You didn't answer the question.

    What about our current system is "unlevel"???

    Just saying it and then giving an example of some utopia that will never exist doesn't answer question.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    How does a government stop someone from being greedy?

    The wealthy have a moral obligation to help those who are less well off. But even if they didn't have that obligation, it would still be in their best interest to endorse a moderate amount of government redistribution of wealth to keep the imbalance from growing too large.

    In the early '30s there was a real danger that either a Russian style socialist revolution would sweep over America, or America would descend into fascism in the attempt to suppress that threat. The main reason neither of those things happened was because of the New Deal. Economists will debate forever whether the New Deal did anything to ameliorate the Great Depression, but the redistribution of wealth that it represented took the wind out of the sails of the growing socialist movement. It's why Germany got Hitler and you didn't.

    Society can do that. Not the government.

    Direct your anger at congress and re-elect no one. Banks are just doing what they do and have done since The Rothchilds began banking. Be careful for what you ask for as you may get more than you bargained for.
