After re-evaluating my title, that's a fair question. My own personal wish is that each American has the choice of whether to pursue any level of wealth they desire. I would never want everyone to have the same level of wealth with no options...net/net, we should always have that choice. So when considering other options pertaining to economic systems, the thought came to me that no person who is willing to work hard should have to live like someone who really doesn't care. Of course I realize that happens in many cases regardless even under our current system. but the important point is, if you're willing to work & study hard, it is possible to achieve your desired goal. It also ocurred to me that people who don't wish to work hard are in the vast majority of cases, punished for their lack of motivation. and I think that is right and just. So my title was more or less one of the focal points of my thoughts.
