Talk about not getting it... from the latest Carnival of the Vanities :
The Radical Libertarian takes to task those who decry people who are said to make too much money. Oh, really? Look at Jeff Bagwell's salary of 19 million and change for riding the bench with a weak shoulder while a guy selling peanuts makes minimum and tips without health care and tell me that isn't unjust.
I'm not a baseball fan, but I'm guessing here that this is part of the standard contract imposed by the league. So what's the point of blaming the guy ?
As for the 19 millions versus the guy who sells peanuts, people value great baseball players far more than they do trading for peanuts. Who are you gonna blame for that ? The baseball player for contributing too much to other people's values, or maybe the peanut seller for contributing too little ?
If he wants to help the peanut seller, maybe this guy should start a campaign dedicated to glorifying the peanut... because he's obviously a nut.
