Socialism = envy

ABC radio presenter Jon Faine asks PM candidate and ALP leader Kevin Rudd (via Andrew Bolt):

But then you have to do something about wealth. Do you increase taxes? What do you do about people making too much money?

Yup. Thats the ABC for you. And the ALP probably sympathize right down the line. Wealth is a problem that has to be tackled. Nobody stops to ask why inequality in itself is a bad thing !?

These guys are at the forefront of the politics of envy.

Socialism is an ideology built on envy, and has killed 100 million in the last century. It is still part of our mainstream political debate and discourse.
