Wealth, power and influence of Bitcoin whales in the future. Increasing future inequality?

So I get the following questions asked a lot and I don't really have a good answer: How does Bitcoin solve the problem of wealth inequality if a small percentage of people/companies own the largest portion of the available Bitcoins? And won't this result in the whales having immense wealth, thus power and influence in the world? Usualy I answer saying that that is not the problem Bitcoin is trying to solve, and that wealth inequality will probably always be a thing or at least something that won't be solved by the form of currency we use. I'm curious what your thoughts are on this since I have failed in finding much information about this issue.
