A Thought about Economic Inequality

"More and more, our political system treats economically successful Americans as resources for 'society’s' desires rather than as sovereign individuals with an inalienable right to their own pursuit of happiness. Witness, for example, the plans Democratic candidates have for this country. Free health care—paid for by 'the rich.' Free college—paid for by 'the rich.' Larger Social Security payments—paid for by 'the rich.'"
