Awkward for Ideologues?

“In late March, George F. Will argued that the truth about inequality in America, according to his op-ed title, is ‘awkward for the left and right.’ He points to the reality of transfer payments in the United States. Ignoring that reality is what leads to awkwardness. On the left, critics of capitalism portray low-income earners as a growing class of the impoverished … and high-income earners as a growing class of filthy rich. … leftists ignore the ‘successes’ of the very system they set up, the better to complain and demand more of what has already been done. But what do rightists ignore?” (04/01/24)
