Of course some people will always take pie from others, but still, virtually everyone is better off. Those that refuse to contribute to the pie-making will not fare well, but they certainly will not either way in the long run.
Does that suggest that growing is better than sharing?
Ask a business woman if she would be happy to write a larger check to the IRS if the tax rate is 15% instead of 34%.
Please do NOT sit back and give President-Elect Trump and the Republican majorities a chance!
Please work hard to make more, better pie, a VARIETY of pie. IF WE do that, we all will enjoy that pie ("pie" YOU flavor and favor). If YOU then desire to give pie you don't need, to those that do, YOU and US will have more pie to help those that need it (or anyone YOU want to help). All of OUR children will then inherit a bakery, instead of an empty pie pan.
Is growth better than sharing?
It can be. We can be bigger and better than we have been.
