Are you economically illiterate or what?

According to your theory, the western countries all should abandon machines, computers, or any automation devices to create jobs and distribute wealth more fairly.
That's not my theory. My theory is that rich are to be allowed to become richer, but:
a) their wealth generation should be taxed adequately (but not too much), and that tax revenue should be redistributed to the less fortunate.
b) their example should motivate the poorer to develop themselves to achieve wealth too
State's role is to make that happen, and core of that is to decide the exact figures for wealth redistribution (tax regime, and how to allocate and spend tax revenues).
For that there are different opinions, and my theory is that all the "political circus" evolves around that.
My theory is NOT that you first create the political circus, and then expand resources to fix it.
My theory is that in western democracries, the political "circus" is the method to decide about the figures in wealth redistribution.
western democracy works around fairly distributing wealth? You are not very good at telling jokes, aren't you?
No, I'm just not American.
But even in American context, the question is to define what is fair to begin with. It is a subjective matter, and you don't have a single entity to dictate it, like you have in China.
