Society the thing we all live in. It's a cooperative and we all banded together for the survival and well being of each other. No man who lives in society is an island. No man of wealth could have that wealth without all those who worked tirelessly beneath him. We all live in society and there is an unspoken social contract that is expected to be abided by. The success of a society is measure by the well being of it's poorest citizens. So as to who says so, society as a whole, as it has time and time again when excess greed has become too prevalent, and the majority are forced to rebel for survival and rights. This is why unchecked greed is bad, it forces this cycle to continue. Too much power finds it's way into the hands of the few, and they take from, and demand too much from the many, the many in desperation is forced to rebel, many lives are lost on both sides, and society crumbles. A new society is formed, but in time the lessons learned are lost, and it all begins anew, and the cycle repeats.

Let's break the #ing cycle and outlaw #ing unchecked wealth already. It's fine to reward hard work, and it's good to promote and reward innovation. There's a positive to be gained by people who give more or play a big role in society having a reason to do so. That does not require unchecked wealth though. Such incentive can be gained while having a wealth and standard of living cap. It's not like the rich are going to say # it and go live on the street because suddenly they are limited to one mansion, one yacht (Or maybe even a communal one groups of them share), 10 cars, and only so much in savings. There's nothing positive to be gained by unchecked wealth for society. It harms it as a whole. It's not necessary for unchecked wealth to incentivize people. In fact having a savings cap will require the same amount of work from the rich as it will be required to maintain their absurd standard of living due to the savings cap.

And yet when the day comes they will die and be as rich as a beggar...

Death The Leveler.

The time is fast approaching when material wealth will mean absolutely nothing! As it does in Death.
