It comes to mind, from the thoughts of Mr. T. Jefferson:
“To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.” — Thomas Jefferson, April 6, 1816
Seems pretty simple when you put it like that. But it’s capitalism. A communist would take exception, by virtue of the core differences in the two philosophies.
