I would replace the word "intentions" with "level of consciousness." Money, sex, health, and other things like that flow to people who are at a higher level of consciousness, from those who are at a lower level of consciousness. It's how the universe and reality works. It is a fact, not an assumption, that defective people are of lower value. But yet, they are still of value because we as a society support them. That fact is amazing, given that defective people were culled 1000's of years ago, even as recently as the 1950's in Nazi germany.
Nothing in accurately describing the nature of reality is a call to support it. On the contrary, Steve would LOVE a classless society, because it would imply that we have all transcended our current state to a collectively higher state of awareness or being.
One might call this heaven.
We do not live in heaven, so sorry to disappoint you
