Money is the oil that must be kept in circulation. If people can't eat and can't work because employers want to work some people hard and others not at all, then some things we consider antisocial (crime, begging, rioting, looting) become a more productive use of time and energy for the criminals, beggars, rioters, and looters. If taking from the rich is the only way, then debating the fairness politically would be less violent . BTW, the criminals, beggars, rioters, and looters may exist simply because they are the only ones that the elite and political class notice. Plenty of people want to be treated better, but don't have either the social skills or the anti social skills to get a soapbox.
Rent seekers have a long history of using the political system to get what they want. Much of what goes on in business is not productive, but rent seeking. Have you thought about how so many corporations are run by accountants and lawyers than by the people who actually design or make the products? It used to be, the C Suite was occupied by people with backgrounds in engineering, operations, manufacturing, and even marketing! At least the marketing department is focused on the customer, if not the product, instead of elaborate rent seeking schemes.
