Walter E. Williams: The productive vs. the unproductive Column dated 27 April 2005
As always, Walter E. Williams writes a thought-provoking piece that we could all benefit from pondering. Here, he talks about two types of people: the productive and the unproductive. Productive people are people who think of things they need and want and set out to create opportunities for getting those things through hard work and innovation. Unproductive people are those people like personal injury tort lawyers (no, not all of these layers are bad. About 90% of them just give the rest a bad name). They sit around trying to figure out ways to get the stuff they want without actually having to work for it. These people are parasites on our society. Which one are you? Which one do you want to be? _____________________________________________
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
