If you have a few dollars, well, you didn’t MAKE that money—you TOOK it. This according to the economics professors who teach your children and help them form their worldviews. Do you patronize companies that give some of their profit to charity? I explain why they would be acting more morally by reducing the price of the goods you purchase. After all, why is it the company’s job to take additional money from you, the customer, to give to someone who is arbitrarily defined as a ‘charity recipient’. Are companies now in the redistribution business? Must be why more and more companies boast of how much they ‘give away’. The majority of students believe that corporations and businesses are under the moral obligation to fulfill the social promises rashly made by politicians. They believe that businesses have more important obligations than making money for their owners. They believe the equation Poverty = Virtue and wealth is, in itself, evidence of moral malfeasance. Where does this all end? Can we fix it?
