Therefore they will keep the system the same, until their hand is forced. And there'll be somewhat of a marketing campaign by their politicians whom they own to sell the system to the public - the usual guff about welfare queens and "why should I pay for someone else's medical care" etc etc.

Power shifts over time. And if any powerful person thinks they are above everyone else none of them have the magic power of living forever. They will do what they can get away with up and until a big enough crack forms they get toppled from the top of the heap. It does not matter which direction a society goes to, be it more open or closed. Humans are no different than any other species. Stress out enough of a population that population, drain the resources enough, it will hurt even the top and when those fractures at the top happen, those below will seek to topple that top and take power themselves.

Well in my lifetime the rich have kept getting richer.
