No, you are the one who doesn't live in reality. There will always be inequality in any society. The names, faces, currencies and even entire cultures change, but there will always be elites in the world who will find a way to somehow succeed or better utilize resources because they have a better grasp of scalability or inherited it from someone else who figured it out.

What's next elph, that trickle-down economics is an actual thing and not a liberal buzzword made up by people who don't know any better?

you even that out and you'll find everything changes, there's no longer a society of kings and peasants
Dude you discount so many variables its mindboggling. Even in the most socialized states you will see some communities that are better organized than others, provide more effective education or are just savvier in general. There is no "one" race being run: there are thousands of different races all happening simultaneously where the barometer of what defines "success" and "stability" are different depending on what the cost of living is and what an individual actually wants out of life.

I'm also going to assume you've never seen this. https://www.brookings.edu/opinions/t...-middle-class/

Thought this was going in a very different direction based on this, even knowing the source.

I still think that you're probably a secret racist.

Blacks are superior because they’re lower on the socioeconomic ladder

And they can move boxes fast as ****

Honestly I’m disappointed you believe that on an equal playing field the better man would win

hate the GAME

HATE - there’s nothing valid about capitalism

I was told today Eminem is the greatest rapper of all time. How's that for meritocracy.
