Walter E. Williams on the redistribution of wealth

 

Beaglescout

Whether you call it welfare, transfer payments, or redistribution of wealth, there is one uncomfortable fact about it that never gets discussed by the government run media in the United States. Walter E. Williams discusses the morality of redistribution of wealth.

I think it immoral for Congress to forcibly take one American’s earnings and give them to another American to whom they do not belong. If a person did the same thing privately, he’d be convicted of theft and jailed. We might ask ourselves whether acts that are clearly immoral and despicable when done privately are any less so when done by Congress.

I hope and pray we as conservatives, and we as a nation, are ready to start the discussion on the absolute immorality and wrongness of redistribution of wealth, or as it would be called if we did it to our neighbors ourselves, theft.

    • Walter E. Williams* is one of my favorites as well.

      *You have to put the E. in there. There’s another Walter Williams who’s an economics professor too, but he’s from the nutty professor side of the aisle.

      • Hi Brian! This is of course the famous Walter E. Williams, who sometimes sits in the Attilla the Hun chair behind the Golden EIB microphone, and is, as I recall, ‘black by popular demand’.

        He, along with his friend Thomas Sowell, are the only 2 contemporary economists who make economics both interesting and entertaining. Cheers!

  1. It has gotten so bad, Beagle, that there are corporate execs who, while of course taking all they can get in personal salary and bennies, think it’s perfectly okay to take big chunks of shareholder earnings and fling them out to your favorite progressive, do-good non-profits.
