Who Does Wealth Belong To?

First, an admission that I came to the conclusion that the title of the current series should be “Ten Values We Can Agree On For America”. I had been saying “things” instead of “values” and I think Values is much more descriptive.

So, who does wealth belong to? My proposal is that it belongs to those who generate it. Whether it’s a five-figure income or a million-dollar inheritance, I think that it’s not up to the government to divide that money equally.

Let me know what you think.

The main point of my exercise here has been to say we need something that we can aspire to rather than someone we can despise.
