Index of Topics on Site Justice and Fairness and The Little Red Hen
On the recognition that human societies are communities on which each individual depends and to which each individual contributes. This particular issue started on transform_dom early this semester when Greg declared that the money he earned was his to keep and that he chose not to pay taxes on it for government redistribution of wealth.

As I searched for freely accessible sources on this issue, I came across Kenneth Cauthen's Prescription Drugs, the Little Red Hen, and the Common Good, in which a young man states:

"Why should my hard-earned tax dollars go to pay for your DRUGS! I'm 21, work 80 hours a week, and I guarantee the average retiree has more $$$ than I Do!

What makes you think you deserve for me to pay for what you can afford yourself!?!
