    Nice little strawman you have there. An argument for multilateral wealth re-ballencing is not an argument for unilateral action.

    However it does establish the hypocrisy of many wanting equality, it highlights the fact that people do not want those before then to be made equals, that entails personal loss, rather they just want everybody above them to be bright down to make themselves equal, a system whereby there is no personal loss, possibly personal gain, and the loss is fur those the individual is envious of.

    Thank you. I mean I don't see inequality as a bad thing. Just that when power (which money basically is) is vested in a small minority of people that leads to the hogging of money and thus some people getting more say then they should do.

    As I said above I woudl be open to a small amount of inequality but when the richest man earns millions more then the poorest a year just because of circumstances I see that as highly unfair. I don't think it is envy at all actually. It might be in some circumstances but to suggest that some people should be able to have more money then they know what to do with whist others don't have enough money to live is, in my veiw shameful. If multilateral action were taken to increase the wealth of the poorest in the world then of course I would pay my part but to suggest a person shoudl give up almost all their money which would hardly make any impact at all just because they advocate that money needs to be more fairly distributed is a total fallacy.
