Now there's an idea. I'm not sure. I think we could at least limit permissible methods of amassing personal wealth. It's not offensive that some folks have a lot of money. It's offensive that they're allowed to screw people to get it. It's also offensive that they're allowed to purchase power over other people with it. Lobbying should be outlawed; other forms of bribery are already illegal, so why not lobbying? Let people buy summer homes and winter homes and pay for their grandchildren's education and buy a couple hundred cars if they like (if they wouldn't actually prefer to set up a charitable foundation for those who can't do likewise); why should wealth carry political power?
