If you have a problem with the ultra rich celebrities and wish to see their pay "capped"...
Then go and steal it from them at gunpoint, like the common thief that you are.
Don't sit behind your percieved moral shield. It will disintegrate under questioning.
This thought stream is based entirely on jelousy. It is childish and ignorant. Because you aren't rich/ famous and you know you never will be, you do
the only thing possible to level the playing field... you start demonising those who are rich/famous and attempt to grab their wealth.
It's like a child who doesn't have a toy, so cries until a toy can be taken from another child; and then claiming a moral right to do so because the
other child "must have stolen from you in order to own the toy in the first place".

This is largely related to jealousy.
Really? That old chestnut?
The truth never changes.
If not jelousy then what other reason could there be for proposing a pay cap? Moral indignance? Ha, save it.
Perhaps in a moral world a nurse would get a million pounds a year while the footballer would be on £100 a week. However this world is far from
moral, and it shall never be the workers paradise that you envisage.
No government nor economic system can tame the nature of man. The only recourse is to allow the market to take its path, and for each man to determine
his own worth via his actions and career.
