Economic "equality" has been tried before, and it always produces mass poverty and misery because it takes away any incentive for people to work, launch small businesses or engage in innovation that benefits all. Centrally planned economics run by governments always FAIL.
Instead of striving for artificial "equality" in a society run by tyrannical elitists, we should instead work to provide equal opportunities for all, then reward those who choose to save money, work hard, contribute ideas and innovation or invest in good ideas that produce steady returns. To do this, we need serious tax reform that eliminates taxes on savings and investments. We need drastically reduced health care costs for employers as well as the elimination of government subsidies or loopholes for special interests.
Government-protected monopolies for Big Pharma and the medical industry need to be ended so that natural medicine can compete with chemical medicine, bringing health care costs down for everyone. And government-funded tax incentives for powerful corporations need to be ended so that all businesses compete on a level playing field. (It's time to end "corporate welfare," in other words.)
In a truly free society, there will always be income inequality because some people choose to work harder than others. Some people have better ideas than others, and a few people are even willing to take business risks that others shun. In a free society, some people will always excel more than others in terms of earnings. But that's often by choice, and the only way to really achieve "equality" among the masses is to collapse everyone into mass poverty (a la Venezuela).
In summary, the entire economic philosophy of the Left is complete nonsense. The best way to produce economic abundance and wealth for the greatest number of people is to support economic freedom by getting the government out of the way. Watch my video to learn more:
Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
