Proving anybody "wrong" in terms of religious interpretation is even more foolish than in terms of religious adherence to a political doctrine.
I am not a Christian, so it does not worry me what Jesus thought about "people like me." Only Christians need concern themselves with whether they're attempting to push the needle-eye a little more open.
So a couple verses earlier, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, in Earth as in Heaven..." Who is "Thy"? I always thought it meant God, but I guess it means the Invisible Hand or Donald Trump... and Jesus' sermon on the Mount/Plain is really about keeping taxes low and the status quo in power.

PFinVA rightly points out that the practice of Jubilee allowed for the forgiveness of financial debts. Financial debts often resulted in servitude, so the idea of Jubilee was to free those who were in slavery.
This fiftieth year is sacred—it is a time of freedom and of celebration when everyone will receive back their original property, and slaves will return home to their families.
Was Jesus alluding to this? I don't know, but I think the idea of Jubilee gets at the problem of concentration of wealth that permeates the threads in the PoFo these days.
