‘Why Let the Rich Hoard All the Toys?’

6th October 2012

Nicholas Kristof thinks that life is a kindergarten, where Teacher is in charge and the supreme achievement is Play Nicely With Others.

The problem: Reality isn’t a place in which all of the toys are already provided and the chief worry is a fair ‘distribution’.

The tragic flaw of Kristof and his fellow Crustians is that they all read Rawls in college and actually believed it.

    “Imagine a kindergarten with 100 students… while 90 of the children are looking on forlornly — empty-handed.”

    Yeah. Brezhnev and his party buddies get all the toys while the 90% are jailed, starve, or submit. That’s socialism. Oh, wait. He meant America?. Why a 1%er would write this drivel is obvious. Why anyone believes it isn’t. It is demonstrably false. Ninety percent of the toys [cars, homes, computers, clothes, businesses] are not owned by the 1%. OTOH, I myself wouldn’t mind leading a mob of the 90% to down the NY Times, it’s owners and reports, who are all 1%ers.
