If the majority suddenly came into riches, they would lose the incentive to work because in their mind the justification for work is their pay. If this were to happen production would come to a screeching halt and the money they thought would provide a carefree life would become useless as there would be no goods or services available anymore. The average person does not want to work, they are compelled to by the prospect of hunger. So since the system by design obviously requires work, and since due to the nature of the common laborer is only functional if workers are given just enough to make make them comfortable but also feel it necessary to return, it becomes clear that human progress depends on the existence of different classes. I enjoy seeing failures suffer and starve. It is an example of justice at work. If you provide little to no value, but still put in a great deal of effort while still providing little value, then you are replaceable as you have nothing unique to offer and thus have nothing to distinguish yourself from the herd. And if you don't like it, too bad. Most people are brought into this world as unplanned accidents. Riddle me this. Why should bastards be entitled to what disciplined families have built over generations? You have no right to their possessions. You were brought into this world as a nobody and then you look at those who have established their names, have gained a reputation for success and have made their fortunes with complete envy. Basic people deserve basic lives. Instead of being inspired by greatness you feel threatened by it because you are pathetic and inferior. Struggle is the precondition of evolution.
