Why Not Redistribute Talent?

Buckley, Jr., Wm. F.
February 1982
National Review;2/5/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 2, p132
The article offers news briefs from the U.S. The redistributionist temper behind the high tax imposed on the rich by the U.S. President Roland Reagan is incomprehensible. Hostility to the rich is the staple of the anti-Reagan critics these days. Their anguish appears to issue from the fact that Reagan did not lower the marginal tax, which remains at 50 percent. He merely postponed a little bit the figure. Many Catholic bishops are revolting against the ecclesiastical authority. There has been considerable consternation among the Right over President Reagan's showing in the White House of Warren Beatty's film "Reds."
