Inequality: the politics of envy.

I must really seem to have it in for Romney, probably because I do. But if there was any way to express in the space of a few minutes just how out of touch you are with common opinion, especially at the moment, this was the way to do it. Any anti-libertarian concern for the distribution of wealth is purely a matter of envy (hence so many rich people being socialists…), and these things should be discussed in quiet rooms, not despicably bought into the public discourse and made mainstream by a leading politician (The President). Just, wow.
