On the contrary Dick. The "war on terror" and the "war on drugs" have absolutely massive- quasi infinite- means of implementation, from stop-and-search through small wars in far countries. That they don't appear to work is not due to lack of resources.

The "war on inequality" has only persuasion. You can argue about whether particular actions are effective persuaders, but you won't get listened to if there's a suspicion that you're against the whole enterprise anyway.
