In the Sept. 30 "Your Views" section, R. Kent Kirkwood writes that: "We could have something approaching heaven on earth if the wealthy would willingly share their assets and income for the common good."
He also decries how the rich dominate the federal and state policies and get away with tax loopholes.
I wonder if he realizes that the successful people already carry a huge burden to support the growing number of unsuccessful people that bring little or nothing to the table themselves. Does anyone think that the ability to get a ride from the efforts of others is admirable and leads to fostering an environment where people have the incentive to make a difference in the lives of others?
I'm tired of hearing how successful people should be treated as thieves and told to be ashamed of themselves for making a good living for their families and supporting so many others.
