Data Point – Reality setting in?

by Skip December 8, 2017

The nationwide survey by YouGov shows that only 29% of Americans now say life is fair, down from 38% in December of 2016. And, while Republicans are more likely than Democrats to view life as fair, both saw a drop in optimism since last year. “Life Is Fair”: Republicans: 39%, Down from 47% Democrats: 26%, Down 34% […]

Wrong About Rights?

by Steve MacDonald November 2, 2015
Thumbnail image for Wrong About Rights?

Salvo | “…rather than look into the matter to determine whether some true injustice lies beneath a particular disparity (Was there theft? Is there ongoing oppression?), proponents of the new social justice pronounce the disparity itself to be the injustice. In a feat of monumentally poor thinking, reminiscent of the child who wails “No fair!” […]

A moral system requires fairness. A fair system in an opportunity society rewards merit. In contrast, an unfair system redistributes resources simply to derive greater income equality. That is a world in which, in the words of Rudyard Kipling, “all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins.” America does […]

Wisconsin Protesters

by Don March 3, 2011

To the Editor:   Many of the people protesting on Saturday don’t even understand what they are doing.  They talk about “Worker’s Rights” (which I support).  But they have been duped into protesting for public sector  “Union rights”, the right of unions to conspire with politicians against the interests of the American people.      President Franklin […]
