All of the worlds problems begin and end with concentration of wealth. If one economic unit has more material wealth than can be made by that one's own hard work, it has been appropriated from the work of others. Slavery is slavery, whether by choice or coercion. The freedom to rise up and have others work for you does not justify living by the work of others. Whether you call them slaves, indentures, servants or employees is irrelevant. The only thing worse than a master is a FIRE sector parasite.
If it were mathematically possible for no one to do the actual work of producing material goods and everyone at the same time to have others work for us or make money off of money, we could justify employment and finance. But only conservatives and libertarians are foolish enough to believe such nonsense. And then only the rank and file. The banksters, billionaires and successful manufacturers have always known there is no such thing as a righteous capitalist. But they do know how to fool many of the people all of the time. The population growth of the past 200 years has supplied them with plenty of uneducated workers to be kept poor and ignorant in order to have employees that would do the work to make the masters rich.
There are not more people alive today than the Earth can support. Too few people have so much wealth that poverty and want are a matter of poor distribution, not too little to go around. Urban population growth started when more children than family farms could support were forced by such conditions to move to cities. They found jobs with employers who maximized profit by paying as little as possible. Poverty grew. That's not because there are too many poor people. But there is a segment of the population that we'd do well to reduce.
Cull the rich parasites, not the poor, to reduce that part of the population that does the harm. The best answer is to confiscate all their wealth and property, especially the means of production. Then the manufactures, or importers as most of them have devolved to, can work alongside their former employees and thus earn an honest living in a cooperative factory. We can simply imprison the banksters and the rest of the economic arsonists of the FIRE sector. That includes the Great Oz who recently trumped the election.
