I'm am not sure when wanting basic rights and privileges for everyone in society became a part of the socialist agenda. Wanting a basic standard of living for everyone does not equal everyone having the same standard of living.
Well said. The millions of poor people out there aren't asking to live in mansions or drive expensive cars or anything. They just want basic access to services, the ability to support their families, and to not have to send their kids to bed hungry every night.

And yeah I know, "capitalism doesn't work that way, yadda yadda," but at a certain point corporations and the rich are going to hoard so much of the money there won't be enough people left who can afford to keep the machine going, and it'll just grind to a halt.
