Why is greed bad? Why is Selfishness bad? I would say people believe these things are destructive because they do not benefit the common good or thr good of the people. While this also may seem like the same thing the point that that common good simply means 51% or more. Others not included in the commons may not need to be helped or may disagree with what is being done.
I need to work hard on staying focused here.
Now while, large CEO's may oppose welth redistribution it may not be simply to keep the government dirty fingers out of their bank accounts. Lets look at the fundamental cause for wealth inequality. Is it due to the rich keeping it all? Well that can't be because the ammount of wealth is not nessisaraly fixed. You are not poor because somebody else is rich, if you go out and get rich, then you both are rich, the other guy doesn't nessisary become poor.
So I would say the fundamental reasoning behind the inequality is regulation. What!? Yes. Things like small buisness liscense taxes and other government related expenses on new buisness owners are an unnecessary hurdle that prevents too many from turning a profit. Even things like a doctor's liscense, a government program purposed to help improve received care end up justifying outlandish pay and expenses. Why does the guy that tests my urin sample need 8 years of schooling and make 10X what I do? Because he has a liscense… most of the simple care visits can be handled by nurses who are quite knowledgeable and competant to tell me what I need however even though the solution may be clear to them they can't help you. They need a license to do that.
Now I don't hate Doctors, im simply using them to illustrate what I mean. So lightening buisness regulation is a great way to allow lower income families to get on the road to a better life.
Adding regulation makes zero sense to me. Let's lay this out. The big corporations steers the government to make laws that cut out competition (liscensing, bailouts, manufacturing codes etc.) and somehow asking the government to wright more laws is going to help? Remember that these law makers are in the pockets of these corperations, they won't wright a law that hurts the hand that feeds them.
Clear and concise deregulation is a strong and accurate way to pull down corporate power and simultaneously improve the lower and middle class.
