This article spent 90% on telling me the problem and the last few words telling me the solution...Which is more social programs.

... which is more wealth redistribution.

It's not like the current system allocated wealth well. Every system redistributes wealth (including the current one).

... Wealth redistribution is essentially theft, no matter how much you like it

Start Blaming America's Poverty for the size of its government.

The government literally puts its name on the money it prints.
