Prove Me Wrong: Machinery of Freedom: Starvation
That is precisely my point: economic freedom precedes political freedom. Socialism, eliminating economic freedom, then will never be able to have large scale political freedom.

Now you of course disagree. And you will argue, theoretically of course, that what I say is wrong. But it is a historical fact that there is NO large scale socialism despite many various attempts at such. Your arguments to the contrary are purely academic and represent no real world experience. Proving, exactly, the right wing case against it.

Is capitalism imperfect? Sure. Does capitalism create economic systems that can be rigged and catered to the upper class? Maybe. But atleast capitalism can be implemented on a large scale.

Socialism, on the other hand, doesn't even get off the ground. It's a nonstarter, IMHO.

Prove Me Wrong: Income Mobility
So what happens to inequality when one profession becomes more respected?  It depends.  If people in the profession currently earn less than average, then giving them more respect increases inequality.  But if people in the profession currently earn more than average, then giving then more respect actually decreases inequality.

Now for the fun part.  Imagine people become more egalitarian, to the point where they heap scorn on the rich and successful.  What is the effect on inequality?  By the previous logic, the effect is directly counter-productive.  The more you scorn rich people, the more people you scare away from high-income professions.  The more you scare away, the lower their supply.  And the lower their supply, the higher their income!

Lesson: If you really want a materially more equal society, stop beating up on the 1%.  Do a complete 180.  Smile upon them.  Admire them.  Praise them.  Sing songs about how much good they do for the world.  The direct result will be to rais
