Brigid has posted a most excellent screed on Sharing the Pie
Go read it, it's well written, and well said indeed.
I read Atlas Shrugged in college. To this day I buy up used copies at book stores and give them away. This is not an altruistic act, it is entirely self-serving. If you don't understand, then you need to read some Ayn Rand.
Socialists see the world as a zero-sum game. If a socialist wants a bigger piece of the pie, he needs to steal it from someone else. It would never occur to him to bake his own, or to do some other useful labor in trade.
Capitalists understand that when two people voluntarily exchange goods, both win, and the pie gets bigger. If both sides did not come out ahead, the exchange would not occur.
Thus when Michelle Obama says, "someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more." She is a socialist. And socialism my friends is Evil with a capital E.
It is evil because it devalues human endeavor.
It is evil because it devalues basic human rights.
It is evil because it stands in stark opposition to the human right to property, from which all other rights derive.
It stands against privacy, and ,as needs must, against the right to life itself.
As soon as someone says that someone else is more worthy of the fruits of your labor than you are, Then you know where they stand:
They would take your property. They would take your privacy (for how else would they know what to take). They would take your right to self defense (for after all you might resist). Indeed they would take your life itself should you stand against them.
And that, my friends, is why they are Evil.
