Progressives and Human Nature

A random thought.

Odd how Progressives point to Ponzi-scheme scam artists like Madoff and say: "human nature!" "Must be constrained!" Yet, when someone works hard for years, takes risks, exercises creativity, and makes himself and thousands of others rich without fraud or so much as wanting government favors, no such inclusion in the nature of humans is announced. The only response is: "They can afford higher taxes."

That sounds a lot like "Heads I win, tails you lose."
