One only needs to look at the concept of super PACs to see how the wealthiest among us have changed the rules to benefit themselves.

The second assumption is the strawman that people are arguing for "equal wealth". The primary argument I have seen is that wealth inequality has grown significantly over the past 40 years and it is reaching historic levels. This is bad long-term for the economy because it hurts the purchasing power of a large portion of society and our economy is built on consumer spending.

This is why even billionaires are sounding the alarm on the dangers of inequality.
Exceptionally well-stated. In this day, if you're arguing otherwise, it's due to 1) naivete or 2) bad faith. May be some overlap.

Ayn, is that you you heartless louse?

No one is advocating a Stalinist notion of "equal wealth". That's just a ridiculous suggestion. A social market economy should ideally encourage capitalism to work for everyone to the best of it's potential. That should, you know, prioritize that the masses of grunts that you seem to be suggesting be required to remain poor for the betterment of those that they are producing wealth for, should at least make enough money that they could have something that resembles a life for themselves and their children. But hey, maybe that's just asking too much in the richest fucking country in the world.

Awesome. Your archives are superb! The Chicago Historical Society should have you on speed dial.

930 W. Fulton is gorgeous. Wish it was taller, but that red brick and detailing is sublime!

Looking at those shots reminded me - what's up with the hotel at Navy Pier? Nearly two years ago there were renderings of a fairly elaborate facade covering the building.

Here's a webcam. https://app.oxblue.com/open/mchugh/navypierhotel

Not sure if the construction has halted or if it is ongoing... the timelapse appears to show continuous work.

There are several versions of the design floating on the internet, but IIRC this project got VE'd majorly. I believe this rendering is most current version, but I could be wrong.
