Every forced transfer is a loss at the expense of an opportunity for a productive reciprocal exchange. The exchange the wealthy desire is respect for property of all kinds, leading to stoicism in the individual, since it is only stoicism that both requires action and prevents all imposition of costs upon *everything*: display (sound, sight, appearance, movement), word, and deed.

The underclass wants redistribution AND discounts on consumption without paying the cost of respect for the property that makes it possible: physical, behavioral, informational, institutional, territorial, environmental.

The underclass lacks agency which is the reason for their low GMV (genetic market value: reproductive, social, economic, informational, political, and military).

If we train one another in stoicism we can implement redistribution.
