Quote of the Day

George Will on why liberals hate the rich, and on how the government is there to stoke that hatred:

"People are less dissatisfied by what they lack than by what others have. And when government engages in redistribution in order to maximize the happiness of citizens who become more envious as they become more comfortable, government becomes increasingly frenzied and futile."
