Peeve of the Day – 9/10/08

I overheard someone complain the other day that farmers want to unfairly monopolize the benefits from the “Fruit of the Earth.” I suspect this individual has never gained any fruit from a bare piece of earth… Mother Earth does not simply give her fruits away. They have to be earned with work, and patience, and yes even such unseemly things as capital. What benefits farmers reap don’t come from their possession of the land anymore than having an office makes you an executive… The value in both cases comes from their work.

And that is the Peeve of the Day.
