Income Inequality is Not Necessarily a Bad Thing

David Lawrence
Written by David Lawrence



Bernie Sanders, feeling sanctimonious and generous, says, “At a time when so few have so much, and so many have so little, we must reject the foundations of this contemporary economy as immoral and unsustainable.”


The doddering old fool is at his old buzz saw—income inequality.  Not that he really cares but shouting about income inequality is a good lure for more votes from the have nots.


Doesn’t Bernie realize that difference, inequality and variety are what makes the beauty of the world. This does not just relate to finance.


Models are gorgeous and butch lesbians are usually hideous.  That is a fact.  Should we protest beauty and ugliness?


I am a good athlete, ranked in three sports, but Derek Jeter is a great one.  Should I protest the unfairness of his being born with more athletic gifts?


I am intelligent and have a Ph.D.  But I am no Einstein.  Should I holler that I have been jipped in terms of brains?


Come on Bernie, quite complaining about inequalities and start encouraging people to develop their potential skills. Inequality is not immoral.  It is the way of the world.


Quit crying about income inequality and start crying that some children are born with cancer and others are born healthy. There are greater inequalities than income. This is not a perfect world and whining won’t make it so.


Bernie, you are a spoiled child.  Your complaining doesn’t improve the world.  It causes divisiveness and failure.  It does what Obama did in a socialistic framework.
