Income inequality – Social justice

By Staff | Dec 30, 2015

To the editor:

There’s been a good bit of discussion lately about the inequality of incomes generated in our mostly free market economic system. Social justice, according to many left-liberals requires that incomes be redistributed by government in the interests of fairness.

Well, let me give you my ideas on income inequality and social justice.

What I think is fair is that I keep my income and spend it the way I want to, and you keep your income and spend it the way you want to.

Oh? You say that isn’t fair?” That’s inequitable?

Tell me, then, just how much of my income you deserve – and why you deserve it.
