Wowbagger_TIP:

1st paragraph: Beat that straw-man! I still won't pretend I don't know what people complaining about evil corporations mean when they say "we need change".

I hear "the rich are the problem" and "the rich need to pay their fair share in taxes" from a different person I know personally every week. I know where taxes go, I won't pretend that I don't.

Your second and third paragraphs just expounded on what you quoted from me. I agree with your criticisms of our times! REALLY!

But your equal opportunity utopia hasn't ever existed and probably never will. There have always been haves and have-nots and people that don't earn what they have.

If you come up with a new way to make it happen then I'm all ears. All the ways proposed to date have already failed.

Jesus teaches me how to live in spite of it all because his words go into my ears instead of come out of them. It won't matter what insanity follows.

That's enough for me today. Dibs on the top bunk in the FEMA camp!

So as near as I can tell, your only issue with my argument is that I don't subscribe to your apparent philosophy of, "If it's inevitable, just relax and enjoy it." Just because you believe it's inevitable, doesn't mean we should all just accept it. I don't believe we should, and I don't see anything wrong with trying to change things. It'll never be a utopia, but it could certainly be a lot better.
