Ron Paul, most of whose ideas are admirable, has made contradictory statements with regard to the Rich. On the one hand he states that financial interventionists are motivated by envy but also says that one of the causes of our financial political crisis is a “gross discrepancy in wealth distribution going from the middle class to the rich.” So, if there is a problem in distribution, why do we need to interject envy into the matter? Which is it, Libertarians, envy or injustice? I say if you correct the injustice, you’ll assuage envy considerably.
