Could Wealth Inequality be the END OF DEMOCRACY?

On International Women’s Day, Kimberly Kardashian gave women across the world a piece of unsolicited advice:
“Get your fucking ass up and work”
It seems that the privileged life of the elite and wealthy have become completely detached from reality insinuating that humans are “lazy” for not reaching their level of success.
 
Meanwhile, increasing populations of individuals are systemically oppressed, unable to afford the basic human needs of food and shelther, while working for an absolute minimum of 8 hours a day. 
 
These humans, or “Human Capital Stock” as White House adviser Kevin Hassett puts it, dedicate their lives to these massive corporations that see record profits year after year while giving absolutely nothing back to the life blood of their companies; the people responsible for making these profits possible.
 
One woman, Jessica Defino, came forward on Twitter exposing the working conditions of Kimberly’s App Empire: one that has profited over $157 million since 2014.

I was an editor on the Kardashian apps in 2015 in LA, worked days nights & weekends, could only afford groceries from the 99 Cents Only Store, called out “sick” more than once bc I couldn’t put gas in my car to get to the office, & was reprimanded for freelancing on the side

If their blatant disregard for reality wasn’t enough, the rich are flooded with endless tax loopholes persevering their never ending wealth reserves while putting the entire weight of government spending and national economies onto the working class.

As the poor get poorer, the question needs to be asked: Could wealth inequality will be the end of democracy?

Although democracy may have different meanings for different people, the idea of democracy is that all individuals are supposed to have equal standing. That means each individual, regardless of their social class, has the same vote as all others; the same right to express oneself in the political sphere and the same influence over government action.

But when the wealthy receive incentives to invest their wealth and the average citizen is losing more to rising cost of inflation than being compensated by their employers – which side is the government truly on? The rich are able to buy their way through government red tape, to space, and beyond. They can bargain away workers rights while the poor, working class are held under the thumbs of both bureaucratic and tyrannical elites.
