Is the redistribution of wealth valid or not?
As stated by libertarians and classical liberals like John Locke you have several natural rights, among them property rights. Locke stated that if you “mix your labor” with something it becomes your property. Therefore, the wealth that you get from your labor is also yours and nobody can take it from you.
The redistribution of wealth occurs when the government takes taxes and redistributes the money so that everyone has equal amounts. A common form of this is welfare. All people, whether they are rich or poor, have worked hard to gain their wealth. Therefore, it is not valid that it be taken away from them and redistributed.
