Today I read an article at Time magazine by Jonathan Haidt, the psychologist, who talks about the liberal and conservative definition of fairness. He discussed the difference between Mitt Romney's approach to the idea of fairness and President Obama's reference to the idea of fairness. Past the zest a l'orange, I have a few points to make about Haidt's article, to fill in some of the things left unsaid.
Haidt begins this discussion by asking us to name the one who uttered a quote:
So guess which man said, “At the heart of this country, its central idea is the idea that in this country, if you’re willing to work hard, if you’re willing to take responsibility, you can make it if you try”?
