I have to disagree with the sentiments behind this post. While I think you have the right intentions, I think inequality is something that is inherent to human societies. There will always be social classes and those that are better off than others – whether that is with today’s currency or some future, alternative method of measuring affluence and wealth. There will always be someone better off, more capable than you.

Can 7 billion people eat meat? Maybe not. But do 7 billion people want to eat meat? No. There are entire societies that don’t and millions of individuals that choose not to. I think the overall balance is more important than individual balance.

Socioeconomic inequality isn’t a threat. Inequality provides the motivation, the incentive, for change.
