As I’ve said before, it doesn’t bother me if some people are rich, but it does bother me that a lot of people are poor. I am not seeking equality of means, but I would like to see everyone have enough for a decent life. And not just in the US. Personally, I think anyone who is willing to put in an honest day’s work should be adequately rewarded.
It is interesting, however, to think about how we decide who deserves to get a lot of money and who doesn’t. Sometimes it seems pretty arbitrary to me.
