    No, clearly, no, hell no! This is so wrong on so many levels.

    Am I worse off buying bread from a baker? If the answer is yes, I must be a baker!

    As expected, the point flew right over your head. All you're doing is point out the benefits of division of labor, but I'll indulge you with your baker analogy vis-a-vis wealth distribution. You, personally, are better off buying from a baker, but that baker is named "Sara Lee" and the only ones getting rich are the executives at Sara Lee--not the "real" bakers that work there. And for every penny that you gave Sara Lee, it was a penny that the now-defunct Wonder Bread (once owned by Hostess) didn't make.

    When someone gets richer, society is telling them he's doing a good job.

    Uh, no.
