Luzius MeisserSo what is the alternative? Giving everyone the same regardless of how much they contributed to the outcome? That sounds very unfair to me. If I createSee more something, it should belong to me. Of course, the current system is not entirely fair. For example, those born good-looking have an advantage over everyone else. But I'm not convinced that compensating ugly people for their misfortune would be a good idea. It seems better to learn to deal with such differences and to accept that not everyone is born exactly equal.
Andrea HiranakaIn my mind, I believe that all people should "run the race" from the same starting point. Thinking of Maslow's hierarchy of nerds, everyoneSee more should have their basic needs met (health, education, housing, etc). From there is each person's responsability to work harder to achieve higher goals and should be rewarded for his/her efforts.
