Social Justice vs. Property Rights

Social justice is a phrase that sounds very nice. What it really means is that those who are willing to work hard are required to give up what they have earned to those who have not worked as hard. Social justice is a failure at increasing the standard of living of the poor. If government wants to help the poor, the best way to do it is to jealously guard and enforce the commandment “thou shall not steal”. The way to build a wealthy and prosperous nation is for government to protect individual property rights. People are unwilling to work hard to create and produce wealth if they believe that it will be taken away from them by thieves inside or outside of government.
