Walter Williams hits the nail on the head, and I suggest you read his entire (short) column. Here are some tidbits of wisdom from it that I genuinely enjoyed:
Socialist agendas have considerable appeal, but they produce disaster, and the more socialist they are, the greater the disaster.
Free markets, characterized by peaceable, voluntary exchange, with respect for property rights and the rule of law, are more moral than any other system of resource allocation.
Liberals love to talk about this or that human right, such as a right to health care, food or housing. That's a perverse usage of the term "right." A right, such as a right to free speech, imposes no obligation on another, except that of non-interference.
Charity is one of the nobler human motivations. The act of reaching into one's own pockets to help a fellow man in need is praiseworthy and laudable. Reaching into someone else's pocket is despicable and worthy of condemnation.
