I don't know why they call it social science. It's simple: eliminate the rich. There, I've solved the biggest problems in social science. Try doing some real science sometime.He doesn't even try to sugarcoat his sentiments! He doesn't say "tax the rich" or "force the rich to pay their fair share." He outright says "eliminate the rich." (And I can only assume by guillotine!)
If this guy were truly the genius his followers claim he is, then he could have easily spotted the glaring flaw in his logic: if you "eliminate" the richest people (the richest one percent, I assume), that just make the next people down the rich. You haven't eliminated the rich. You've only changed who the rich is.
The only way to eliminate "the rich" is to reduce humanity to one person. As long as you have more than one person, and someone else has more wealth than the other, you will always have someone who is rich.
This is why I can never take wealth redistribution seriously, whether it cloaks itself as communism, socialism, or welfarism: it's completely utopian! You cannot realistically solve the world's problems by attacking the rich and trying to make everyone equal. You will always fail. It would be ideal if everyone had equal wealth. That sounds nice on paper. But it only works on paper. It can never work in practice because it ignores human nature. You cannot attempt to help human beings while ignoring human nature.
Ignoring nature in any form is anti-science, which in turn makes Mr. Tyson ironically anti-science, despite being the scientist he is.
