For me it is not “propaganda” — I support platforms and policies that deliver specific results that have shown to obtain empirically elsewhere. These are facts. You are throwing around claimns and speculation as to what might be. I have seen what can be, and hoipefully will be. You are spouting a weird foprm of American exceptionalism that simultaneously says that the US is special bnecause it is so bigv and so wealthy, and yet the US is simultaneously at a disadvantage becuase it is so big and so wealthy. Non sequitur.

Yes, the top 1% need very badly to have it stuck to them, because they have been sticking it to the 99% for about the past 35–40 years. $14 Trillion in direct wealth transfer needs to be reversed.

What if the US eventually becomes a place where there are 100 Jeff Bezos and everyone else is livibng in their car and making $10 an hour. The US would still be the wealthiest country in the world. Would you be happy as long as you were one of the 100? Serious question.
