You make a lot of unsubstantiated, unsupported statements. How is inherited wealth undemocratic? Where do you get your figure of 70%? How do you know the percentage increases? Weren't our founding fathers the perfect example of a lot of inherited wealth? George Washington was the richest man in the colonies. Jefferson's father, Peter had a vast estate east of Charlottesville, VA. James Madison's estate just a few miles from where I live stretched for thousands of acres. Mr. Madison never worked at labor or building new wealth, just managing what was already established. I think you'll need to produce some evidence and factual evidence to convince me or any critical thinker.
