Proposition: any time wealth is created, it was created by someone's effort; wealth cannot come into existence without such effort.
We speak of unearned income: Medicaid, food stamps, welfare both personal and corporate. But someone had to earn that income, or it wouldn't exist for it to be transferred.
That word "transferred" is a bit of a giveaway -- it's a misnomer, a way of saying "we took it from those who earned it and gave it to someone else". Of course there's no way to have government without doing some of that, but we make accusations of people being "undeserving" of the income bestowed on them -- and those we complain about are always the needy ones, those who have minimal means to support themselves.
But the greatest unearned income in the world is that of money sucking in -- they call it "earning" -- other money, merely by being there. All sorts of excuses are made, such as that people buying stock are enabling production (a lie), but in the end it's just money being handed to some people for no other reason than that those people already have a lot.
When the money handed over is a government check, today's "conservatives" like to call it theft. In essence, it is, but if that is theft, then so is the unearned income sucked up by the wealthy without them doing any work at all.
The question, then, is who actually earned that money -- who did the work for it to happen. And the next question is how to set that theft right.
