Fair point. It’s a complicated issue, but I changed it to be (what I perceive) as more accurate. Perhaps it’s less about re-distribution of current wealth, as much as ensuring a more fair distribution of the wealth gains created by technology.

So, people in control are incentivized to try to become as rich as possible, at any cost, to receive societal respect.
