Welfare states, etc.

The problem with these discussions is that there is a major
philosophical split on this list between those of us who think it is
immoral for the state to redistribute income by force and those who
think it is moral. You can trot out all the arguments in the book (and I
think I've heard them all) and you are not going to convince me to
support welfare statism any more than you are going to change my mind
about rape, murder and slavery.

We have all heard the libertarian and anti-libertarian arguments and
rehashing them really is a waste of time.
