How is it unearned? Someone earned it and put it into the stock market or capital reinvestment in the first place.
It does EVERYONE more good to have that money invested in capital, that is in building more "means of production" to produce more jobs, than having it stored in a vault or hidden under a mattress.
Lots of people who are NOT the "idle rich", people who work for a living, have a retirement fund that is earning intrest or capital gains in the market. They are depending on that fund to live on after retirement. In many cases taxing them 50% would mean causing them to have an impoverished and dependent retirement, instead of a prosperous retirement.
