The Rich and Their Money

November 16, 1986

Kinsley states that "only 59 of the Forbes 400 actually earned their fortunes in socially productive ways." He seem distressed by this. I was under the impression that this was a free society and that it was not obligatory to earn your wealth for the benefit of that society. A person's property should be his to do with as he pleases. I admit this is not currently a popular motion, but nevertheless, it is the only morally correct one.
