Wealth envy and the threat to freedom for us all

Just a short note for today on the Obama administration’s complaint that executives make too much money.  Whether that is actually true or not doesn’t even matter any more.  What matters is that Americans wake up to this fact: If they can do it to them, they can do it to you.  And if you think they won’t, then you lack either the integrity or the wisdom to retain your freedom for long.  You might not anyway.  But it’s worth a fight, no?  Envy is a wicked basis for public policy, but the people in charge derive much of their power from it.
