How could the concept of Equality coexist with the Individualism of Capitalistic societies? The eternal struggle between rich and poor originates from a certain right commonly taken for granted: the right to wealth at birth. That is the first obstacle for Equality. What would be the merit of an individual at birth in a Capitalistic society that is based upon work-reward and meritocracy? If inheritance were eliminated the whole Planet would find a new equilibrium in the time span of one new generation. Like also if all people were to start their Capitalistic race from the same starting point then that race would really be about competition and the obtained benefits would be well deserved. In light of this change, the people could then spend to educate their children but donation and inheritance would not be allowed. An Equality of opportunity would then exist for any "newly arrived". The assets acquired by the people would be distributed after their death in part for a safety net created for the survival of everyone while the rest would end up being auctioned in a free market open to the competition like Capitalism should have been.

@bluegirl58 Why would you compare? I can't think of anyone in my lifetime that is close to MLK's oratory style, courage, or humanity. That doesn't mean that there are not people who possess those qualities also.
