Why I Don't Support Socialism

This column by John Stossel in Reason is absolutely correct:
The idea that government can “make life fair” is intuitively appealing to people—at least until they think about it. I’ll try to help...

People have a range of talents and ambitions. Some will serve consumers better than others and therefore make more money. Government should not worry about that.

It should spend its time abolishing political privileges so that people compete fairly—in the marketplace.
