There is nothing inherently fair about equalizing incomes. If the government penalizes you for working harder than somebody else, that is unfair. If you save your money but retire with the same pension as a free-spending neighbor, that is also unfair.

If you think spreading money around by force seems like an odd definition of fairness, you're not alone.Arthur C. Brooks
We will have bigger bureaucracies, bigger labor unions, and bigger state-run corporations. It will be harder to be an entrepreneur because of punitive taxes and regulations. The rewards of success will be expropriated for the sake of attaining greater income equality.Arthur C. Brooks
The more control you have over your life, the more responsible you feel for your own success - or failure.Arthur C. Brooks
