Bonus Quotation of the Day…

in Other People's Money

… is this Facebook post from earlier today by Bob Higgs:

All those American young people who say they favor socialism don’t really want socialism, a type of socio-economic system that fosters poverty, murder, and ultimately totalitarianism. All they really want is other people’s stuff, at no cost to themselves: all the fruits of the rivalrous market system with none of the personal sacrifice and creative effort invested in making that system work so productively.

DBx: Indeed.

How rich it is that these socialists – each a monument to rank greed – call “greedy” the entrepreneurs and business owners whose efforts produce the riches that these socialists seek to confiscate?
