Humans are the only organism that attempts to improve themselves by redistributing wealth.
This philosophy creates an atmosphere of animosity and greed in which the poor distrust the wealthy.
An arbitrary imposition circumvents the cleansing effects of natural selection.

We are the only species that disobeys natural selection, and often.

Heck, at this very moment, I’m wearing a condom.  I’m also in favour of wheelchair ramps.

And I think you have things out of order.  The resentment is already there.  What you seem to be stating is akin to asserting that poor people didn’t start to get sick until public health services became available.

I am saying that when political liberals, in their self serving philanthropy with other people’s money, seek to “redistribute wealth”’  ,they are actually doing long term harm to the species.

uh huh.

If you want to improve America and have no conscience, a better plan would be to stop feeding the stupid people.  The collective IQ would catch up to the rest of the planet in a matter of a few generations.

Could start out small - outlaw warning labels and let nature take its course.

My brother is a professor of philosophy,
He earns sixty thousand dollars a year and pays about fifteen thousand dollars in taxes.
He fills his student’s heads full of fluff.
I have earned over twenty five million dollars and have employed over two hundred people in my lifetime.
I pay an obscene amount of taxes.
Who do you think has helped more people?

Really?  You’re going to pull the “lol, americans are so dumb” card?  There are a lot of stupid people in this country…and in that respect, at least, the United States is not so different from the rest of the world.

Who do you think has helped more people.

Helped people in what way?  And why is one way of helping better than another and who gets to decide?  Or are just bitter because you pay taxes to support what you think are the useless efforts of your brother?

Over ten million dollars redistributed by the government feeds a lot of people and pays for a lot of public services.
Has anyone ever improved their own life, or the life of others, by taking a beginning philosophy class?
Has anyone resolved the conundrums that exist only in the human mind?
Most people imagine that philosophy professors understand the philosophers they study.
Get to know one and you pretty soon know that they are more befuddled than non-academicians.

Would you rather have a public health clinic or a discourse on Kant?
THAT is an answer to your question.

Why do you answer my questions with questions?  It gets us no where.  My questions are not difficult to answer if you feel so strongly about the subject.  However, if you insist your position may not be questioned and must be accepted without explanation then there’s no point continuing the discussion and I remain unconvinced and have no compulsion to provide an answer why.

My brother is the owner of a pizza place.
He earns sixty thousand dollars a year, but he won’t show me his tax returns.
He makes a pretty damn good pizza.
I have earned forty-eleven billion billion billion dollars and employ and infinite number of people.
I pay 12% in taxes.
Do you think I’m lying? Do think I engage in non-sequiturs? Do you think I quote myself? Do you think I’ve had this much success and still don’t have the sense to end a query with a question mark.

I went back and added a question mark.
Could I order a pizza with extra non-sequiturs?
