    It only works if we're already pretty much equal. If we all can start on the same point in the race, with the same basic tools, it may just work.

    But not if we live in the real world, which is massively unequal. In that case, their vision just helps those already rich and powerful even more, and makes it all the easier for the rich and power to preserve and protect their advantages -- and extend them.
