Some of you readers must think I'm kidding, or out on the fringe, when I tell you about how some teachers and their unions support socialism.
I was talking to a teacher yesterday and I mentioned "my money." His reply was, "It's not your money, it's ours. You didn't make it on your own, we all had a part. Society made it possible for you to earn that, so it belongs to everyone."
He wouldn't empty his pockets and give me our money, though. But he really believes what he said.
How does someone, especially someone who grew up in the United States, come upon such a belief structure?
