Social Equality? So share the expenses of the wealthy, too.

Assuming socialism is right, the rich should give the poor their money. Why does it not also follow that the poor must also then share in the risks/debts/expenses/hard work/smart work/saving money which the wealthy use to create economic wealth?

    Apr 4 2013: It is not "Their money" rather is is money over which they have stewardship. It is the money that the political economy chooses to allow them to be responsible for. This is just machanics. BTW it's the same for the working poor that have money removed from each and every pay check. So the question is built upon a false assumption.
