That's the trouble you talk about polarisation of wealth, but is leaving the the UK a viable solution, which country in the world without polarisation of wealth are you intending to emulate with these utopia socialist politics, where is the evidence to show a working proposal?
Does the redistribution of wealth include you giving up 90% of your lifestyle to bring 99% of the global population up to your own level of wealth, or do you just want a cut from the 0.0000001% super rich?
Are you going to trade in your central heating and imported goods for a near subsistence lifestyle to help out the rest of the world?
The referendums as much about independence as greed, wanting something that someone else has got. Thinking the grass is greener on the other side, but with no thought that actually its quite good at the moment and could get worse.
Yes a minute proportion of people get lucky, some also make their own luck, but without them we wouldn't have a Facebook, nor a Google, Apple, you name it, most of the benefits we enjoy in the western world are a product of capitalism. The same capitalism you'll be enjoying as you type the response on your capitalist computer on the capitalist hosted internet.
I agree that its not fair, life's not fair, we weren't born equal and we wont die equal but I cant see there's any obvious solution, I think when you think through the consequences it ultimately leads to a step down for everyone.
Happy for you to lead the redistribution of wealth by example.
