21m:
many wealthy people and corporations use their money to buy rules that favor their position; tax, anti-trust, IP laws, the point is with large size and money goes a great deal of political power and the more concentrated the wealth is a t the top, the more susceptible you are to this corruption.


22m30s:
nobody should expect equality of income. the real problem is that we don't have equality of opportunity: schools available to poor are not as good as those available to wealthy. Tax laws are skewed to disadvantage the poor....

another stat:
the top 400 wealthiest people in the us collectively own more wealth than the bottom 115,000,000 people in the US.

Now, don't get me wrong - I am NOT for redistribution of wealth. What I don't like is how this wealth is used to shit on the little people, to create an oligarchy if you will.
