Henry Hazlitt hit the nail on the head about our current economic crisis... 60 years ago


“The whole gospel of Karl Marx can be summed up in a single sentence: Hate the man who is better off than you are. Never under any circumstances admit that his success may be due to his own efforts, to the productive contribution he has made to the whole community. Always attribute his success to the exploitation, the cheating, the more or less open robbery of others. Never under any circumstances admit that your own failure may be owing to your own weakness, or that the failure of anyone else may be due to his own defects – his laziness, incompetence, improvidence, or stupidity.” - Henry Hazlitt

As long as we have people in charge demonizing (via taxation, restriction, and penalty) those that have made well for themselves through hard work while at the same bolstering those who have no desire to work and earn their own way - we are destined to fail.
