And I don't have the burden of proof. I'm not convinced of the claim that wealth = oppression.
I added influence as an edit.

You also said this

I already aknowledged that i accept the power money can buy within our system.
I don't think that this is exclusive to our current system but rather that it's ubiquitous across every system that we've attempted that involved money. The burden of proof is now on you to show a system that successfully separates power and wealth.

I suppose that the real disagreement here might be that an ever-present opportunity for oppression isn't the same as oppression and I guess that comes down to opinion.
At a time like this, scorching irony, not convincing argument, is needed.
