A good question 4

With his usual incisive clarity, Thomas Sowell asks:

Since this is an era when many people are concerned about “fairness” and “social justice,” what is your “fair share” of what someone else has worked for?

It would be fascinating to hear a redistributionist’s attempt to answer the question.

    This is the correct answer: we own all of what we worked for. However, just as there are some bills that we need to pay, we should also pay the government for governing us, to fund our military, support education, support people in financial distress, and I believe to that also included should be funding for a fair and equal health-care system.

    We do own what we have worked for and can choose to spend it as we wish, but in my opinion, it should be a moral duty to give back to our community by helping those in need.

    This holiday season, we should all work together to make it a time special for everyone.
