Who gives a shit.

The only people who complain about this are those unable or unwilling to comprehend that people aren't equal. In their simplistic minds, all wealth just magically comes out of the ether, and inequality of its possession is a sign of "unfair distribution". To them, the word "earn" triggers great cognitive and emotional distress. They might have to come to the conclusion "I suck".

Business isn't a linear payoff. If you're first to market, or if you're 2mm ahead of the rest of the competition, you get most of the money. At the same time, the rest of the world gets to buy your awesome stuff at an affordable price. Let's have a fucking cry.

Of course at the same time, 1 billion people have left poverty over the last 20 years, thanks to the beauty of inequality AKA free markets. You won't hear these folk celebrate that because it gets in the way of their antisocial designs.
