Ayn, is that you you heartless louse?

No one is advocating a Stalinist notion of "equal wealth". That's just a ridiculous suggestion. A social market economy should ideally encourage capitalism to work for everyone to the best of it's potential. That should, you know, prioritize that the masses of grunts that you seem to be suggesting be required to remain poor for the betterment of those that they are producing wealth for, should at least make enough money that they could have something that resembles a life for themselves and their children. But hey, maybe that's just asking too much in the richest fucking country in the world.
