Well I'm surely happy life went well for you and of course like everyone with your mentality, it's ALL YOU. Nobody ever gave you help, it was all you alone that made it and everybody else are just stupid for not having the same VALUES that you had along the way.
We've heard that one before but it's not going to make it change my mind. The system sucks, we could, can and WILL do better when people work together for a more just society instead of thinking only about their selfish little selves and how THEY made it.

I'm not sure how to fix it, as I'm sure people would scream bloody murder if I suggested a cap on profits (ie; after a certain percentage of profit, the company is required by law to send it downstream to their workers). That would never fly -- it's wealth redistribution at it's simplest.

Not everyone can be doctors, lawyers, programmers, CEOs, etc....
If they were... who would take out the trash?
Why are we still pretending that low wage and minimum wage jobs aren't an important part of the work force?

What we need to do is create the conditions needed in order for people to run their own business.
