Bernie Sanders and the Inequality Gimmick

 

"Whenever you see the inequality gimmick at work, you can be sure that the goal of the speaker is not to end hardships or remedy injustices, but to smash the successful." ~ Don Watkins

NB: Buy Watkins’s new book: Equal Is Unfair: America's Misguided Fight Against Income Inequality.

  1. Who gives a shit about whether it is "fair" or "unfair".

    Ideas of quality, inequality, fairness, or unfairness, are all communist. We are individuals. We have rights to life, liberty and our own damn property. There is no such thing as society: there are individuals.

    Anything more than that will lead inexorably to communism.

    1. "We have rights to life, liberty and our own damn property." In other words its fair. Do you not give a shit whether what you're saying is correct, or are you arguing semantics?

  2. Addressing inequality is fraught with danger,the danger that the few will have a little less and the majority will have a little...more...a preposterous proposition for any greedy,self serving,individual that relies on collective condemnation of the...poor!
