Fairness?

Hey, Billy: [1]

Glenn Reynolds [2]:

“Personally, I believe that ‘fairness’ consists in the fruits of my labor not being taken by corrupt hacks to redistribute to their cronies in exchange for votes.”

Oh, yeah?

Well, dear professor, let me only point out that ‘fairness’ consists in the fruits of my labor not being taken. <=fullstop

Get it?

Oh, I suspect he does.  That’s probably why he put “fairness” in quotes in the first place.  He seems to me to be suggesting that anybody who would take the fruits of his labor for redistribution purposes is a hack.  Frankly I agree with that assessment and I can’t see your disagreeing with it either.  I have my disagreements with Reynolds as well, but I have to say this isn’t one of them.
