- The Left thinks that fairness means everyone’s equally rich.
- The Right thinks that fairness means establishing a system with the fewest obstacles in the path of anyone trying to become rich.
What does that mean? Well, think of the old saw: “If everyone’s special, then no one’s special.”
Well, likewise, if everyone’s rich, then no one’s rich.
The Left knows that, and they understand that their policies will bring about greater equality — which is how they define “fairness” — by bringing about greater poverty.
The right suggests that the way to real fairness is by getting out of the way of people bringing about greater prosperity.
- The left always brings about greater poverty.
- The right always brings about greater prosperity.
