Even if I'm somehow wrong.   We're still at the issue that some people are more  politically privileged then others
That is a problem of government not being held to it's legitimate limits, not a problem with free markets. It is government corruption and cronyism that grant political privileges.

If you study a little economic history of the U.S., you will see that many large corporations were buried by innovation and competition. That is still happening, except to crony businesses who have been granted political privileges.

Didn't you ever read Heinlein?

Automation will make everyone's life easy and fulfilling.There will be universes enough for all!

Innovation and hard work will still be valuable though.

I read it.

Some people share, others don't. Maybe both are predispositions, but I think it's often based on circumstances, probably socialization too. If you are the only kid in class who never shares, you probably won't be popular. Maybe you won't care, but maybe you'll start sharing... Who knows? It's up to you.

The most generous people are poor people who share what little they have.

No, the most generous people by far, measured by what they give compared to what they have, are middle income Christians.
