Within any given ethnic and ethnoreligious group I can think of, it is not that high. That also is a good explanation that socialist policies don't create more equality in wealth... in other words, the countries with the most socialism are also the closest to 100% pure European. There are fewer Jews and fewer blacks in Europe, so that is really why there is less inequality in western europe... the socialism is largely an illusion there.

Before the counter revolution, in america, the only two reasons why there was inequality among the all Citizenry (which was nearly all of WASP and Celtic stock, mind you) was because some of them or their ancestors used govt to gain an advantage (e.g., the planter class who had slavery federally enforced, Henry clay because of his connections to SBUS, the FFV/Boston Brahmins who were granted so much money and land by the crown before they came over and then they passed it on to their descendants) or because they flat out didn't mind being not wealthy (e.g. Lincoln)

Even for black Americans (as a group), the govt takes just as much as it gives. The inequalities due to the war on drugs, wic [2], and the minimum wage are canceled out by the welfare [1], less taxes paid, and affirmative action black Americans benefit from.

Is that a good explanation as to why inequalities in wealth exist? Isn't egalitarianism a revolt against nature?

[1]except for wic

[2]because they should be receiving breast pumps instead so their IQs will be higher.

Meaningless without quantification and nonsense anyway. Just looking at whites in the USA, wealth disparities are huge.

They actually aren't, because I said ethnoreligious group. There are inequalities in wealth among WASPs because the episcopalians are most likely to be old money people who had ancestors granted land and other wealth by the crown and because many Southern baptists don't care if theyre rich.

Wealth inequalities exist because there's worthless leeches in every ethnic and religious group out there as well as those who experienced bad luck, legal obstacles, racism, caste biases, ethnic oppression, or something else to hold them back. Among the leeches, some are simply more shameless about it than others and in some cases are outright enabled by some countries and/or political viewpoints to not even hold themselves accountable for the bad decisions they've made.

I shouldn't be feeding you but no, you made it clear you were talking about within an ethnic group and within ethnoreligious group. (First sentence of your post.) If you were just talking about ethnoreligious groups, then there wouldn't be the need for the term "ethnic group." Anyway, take an ethnorelgious group and there are are still huge income disparities. Not all WASPs are rich.

I know that, but what I'm saying is that the overall wealth disparity is not that high within each ethnoreligous group and the fact that few black Americans are rich and few Jewish Americans are poor. Irish (generally roman catholic), scots-Irish (generally presbyterian, sometimes southern baptist) and Anglos (generally episcopal or methodist, the former not even 3% of the population) are all different ethnoreligious groups from each other, as they are all very different genetically and in religion from one another.

Don't get me wrong as there are exceptions, but the general rule is that there is a significant correlation between ethnicity and wealth. However, that does not make anyone's liberty worth less than that of anyone else.

He has none. He's talking out of his ass like usual.
Look at this. Although the high income does not equal high wealth and even though the range isn't that high, it is common knowledge that some ethnicities are wealthier than others. The most diverse states have the highest Gini coefficient for income inequality... in particular, virginia, Maryland (has a large Jewish population, a large black population, a large Anglo population, and a large irish catholic population), new York, LA (lots of irish catholic descended people, lots of blacks, lots of white evangelical Protestants there, lots of mainline protestants there)and Alabama (almost half black and half white). Meanwhile, the mid northwestern/mountain States have the lowest Gina coefficient for income inequality and if there is any correlation with wealth in equalities there, then it may be because the people of those States are largely German descended and there are few Jews and few blacks there.
