Wealth is created by people's labour. People need to be given control over their labour. Show me a capitalist system that does so and I will agree, but I am not going to hold my breath.

We need to understand that wealth creation in our current global system is only achievable by exploiting others... many of whom are out of sight and mind to us. If we redistribute wealth more equitably in our country it does not change the fact that much of the wealth created by our corporations is created by the exploitation of people in other countries, their resources and their ecosystems.

Our notions of "wealth" may in fact be the problem.
