Rich should not be too rich,poor should not be too poor

Hi,i must say. too rich and too poor will kill all people.In animal world,a strong animal must be able to kill a weak animal,but this is not compleltely suitable for human. A weak man can kill ten strong men using a rifle,if most wealth are gatheered to few people,most people cant live well,even full their stomach,then they will kill the few rich people,this is a simple idea. i read newspeaper each day.I think most people are too poor now coz most wealth are in few rich people's hands.For example,they build many houses,but no one can afford it,then the houses are empty there,all make the society develop slowly? What's the balance between the poor and the rich? what your opinions?

You make it sound like the wealthy are coming in and stealing the money and causing the poverty? I think it all sounds like a nice idea, but socialism has never worked and will not work now, at least I hope it never comes to pass in this country. Look all people have the ability to rise up and make more of themselves. No one is poor because a rich man or woman came in a stole all their money! This Robin Hood mentality to rob from the rich and give to the poor sounds pretty but it is not. A man should not be penalized for figuring out how to make more money. How many men and women have done well for themselves because of pursuing an education like you did? Many, the majority of millionaires are not born with it like so many think, they are people who have a passion to pursue a better life. Take that away by spreading the wealth around and what incentive does anyone have for doing anything? You can lay around and wait for someone else to make the money and the government to spread it evenly among all people. I dont see it as a good thing at all! But that is my opinion.

yeah,you have got a great point,but reality could be rally harsh,the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes poorer,most walth are in few rich people's hands but they have nothing to do with the poor if the earned the money legelly and morally,I think the society,the goverment should responsible more to such a bad situation,they made the minority have chance to be rich but the majority to be poor.the goverment should be blamed

Yes you are right about that. We must find a balance for the wealth to be distributed evenly to all that all may live happy and contented. But that idea seem to be quite difficult to do since its too ideal. That is what many countries are trying to find but so far they have not found the perfect solution to this ever going struggles between the rich and the poor. Greediness for wealth and power are the two main factors that really stops this world from becoming a place to live peacefully and orderly.
