Hypothesis: We have societal systems that deliberately create and maintain inequalities. Because it is in these inequalities/gaps that lie the potential energy to create vast wealth (for those with the means to leverage this potential energy.)

Put another way: If society were more equal, there would be less potential energy available to generate obscene wealth/power for the few.

And so the inequalities, like geese that lays golden eggs, are perpetuated.

How do we change this?
Are there real alternative systems?
Is change even possible?
