    Socialism and Slavery

    Why is socialism(1) (government redistribution of wealth) wrong?

    Isn’t socialism nice? To people who wring their hands at the mere existence of rich and poor, socialism just feels good.

    For some to have more than others is just not fair, right?

    As a compassionate society, we have to “do something” to address wealth inequality, right?

    Do we? And if so, who is the “we,” and does it matter what “we” do?

    To answer these questions we might first ask what drives socialism and socialists: What is their worldview or set of operating assumptions?
