Walter E. Williams on the redistribution of wealth




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.

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.
