For capitalism to work, you can't have anyone taking out more than they produce. This means the lazy worker has to work, and the hard worker can't be over compensated. Either one is bleeding the system. It is obvious that the non-productive worker is doing so, but less obvious when a CEO receives a huge bonus, even though the company is not making a profit.

I disagree kahunadm. I do believe there is corruption and some people with vast wealth that are socially useless. but I don't think in general that those with vast wealth are suppressing others. their vast wealth is not in mason jars in the back yard. it is working. it is investing in companies who create new jobs, in new tecnologies, in new medicines. it is going over seas and creating hope in countries that have few natural resources to lift themselves out of poverty.
few people work for poor persons.
