POSSIBLE STORY IDEA

I just had a nifty idea for a dystopian story. I envision a futuristic world in which the rich and powerful rule while everyone else struggles to make a living. The wealthy would live in super-clean cities while the impoverished would live in dirty dwellings. The wealthy, including the police and military, would be able to afford healthcare that would include cybernetic enhancements while everyone else would have the healthcare of normal people, which would make them physically weaker than the rich and powerful. This will be a very strict caste system where the only way you would thrive is to be rich. Many groups of people among the impoverished will be persecuted due to the rich’s propaganda. However, when superhumans begin to appear overnight, the rich’s preferred status quo will be threatened, which will set the story into motion.
