Warren Buffet's take (more about how things should work) which I've
always loved: "Let's say that it was 24 hours before you were born, and
a genie appeared and said, 'What I'm going to do is let you set the
rules of the society into which you will be born. You can set the
economic rules and the social rules, and whatever rules you set will
apply during your lifetime and your children's lifetimes.' And you'll
say, 'Well, that's nice, but what's the catch?' And the genie says,

poor, white or black, male or female, able-bodied or infirm,
intelligent or retarded.'
