La compassion par la taxation ? Économie En Citations Philosophie

Penn Jillette

Citation de Penn Jillette, un libertarien, à propos du gouvernement et de la compassion:

« It’s amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we’re compassionate we’ll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint. »

Steve Jobs Biography Reveals He Told Obama, ‘You’re Headed For A One-Term Presidency’
The Huffington Post

« You’re headed for a one-term presidency, » he told Obama at the start of their meeting, insisting that the administration needed to be more business-friendly. As an example, Jobs described the ease with which companies can build factories in China compared to the United States, where « regulations and unnecessary costs » make it difficult for them.

Jobs also criticized America’s education system, saying it was « crippled by union work rules, » noted Isaacson. « Until the teachers’ unions were broken, there was almost no hope for education reform. » Jobs proposed allowing principals to hire and fire teachers based on merit, that schools stay open until 6 p.m. and that they be open 11 months a year.
