A Twit

I have always thought Michael Kinsley was a twit. His editorial today titled “Why Be A Billionaire?” (PDF) doesn’t help his cause. I get the point that Kinsley thinks some people have too much money. But in his zeal to redistribute other people’s money, how would he do it exactly? Does the government decide what is too much? Who decides what toys we can buy? The government again? Notice how Kinsley forgets to note that the majority of these people are self-made? This kind of writing is aimed straight at creating class warfare and petty jealousies.
