Do I Deserve What I Have? Part II

by Russell Robertsvia Medium
Wednesday, December 5, 2018

In Part I of this essay, I tried to make the case that I do not deserve the standard of living I currently enjoy, particularly compared to the woman, Bianca, who shined my shoes the other day. Yes, I have more marketable skills than she has, but as I wrote before, that does not mean I deserve a higher standard of living in any fundamental sense. So a legitimate argument can be made that even though I pay a substantial amount of tax on my income and Bianca almost surely receives some benefits from government programs, a substantially higher tax can be justified on grounds of justice.

Do I Deserve What I Have? Part I

by Russell Robertsvia Medium
Tuesday, December 4, 2018

How am I lucky to have the career I have and the economic security I have? Let me list the ways.

U.S. Needs New Arctic Icebreakers. Will Trump's Border Wall Get In The Way?

quoting Alice Hillvia WXXV 25
Monday, December 3, 2018
As the ice disappears, the Arctic is increasingly busy. More ship traffic is pouring into northern shipping routes that are now open for longer periods at the same time that demand for oil and gas is rising. The dissolving ice has become less predictable, raising the risk of ships running aground and spilling oil or stranding cargo, crew and cruise passengers. There are also worries about illegal fishing and smuggling.

America Faces A Crossroads After George H.W. Bush's Death

quoting Condoleezza Ricevia CNN
Saturday, December 1, 2018

The juxtaposition highlighted the acute loss of the last World War II veteran to occupy the White House, along with the decency and service Bush embodied. It is fitting that news sites' homepages Saturday morning were bracketed by Bush's death and the G20 summit in Argentina. They are, in fact, bookends.
