On Liberty and Sharing the Wealth

Sharing the wealth. Popular phrase. It’s all the rage. Of course, these days it means that those who have somewhat more than others, relatively speaking, are going to be required to give up some of that so that the others can get some.

Walter Williams talks about the concept, where he points out that someone who holds to the liberties as envisioned by the framers of our society will be soundly defeated if they try and stick to such a concept.

Guess he’s right.

As an aside, the local paper printed this Williams column in today’s paper, while his site shows it was published on the 5th. Talk about being behind.
