Here's one to spark some debate. Do the "weak" (i.e., the
disadvantaged, etc.) have any moral claim on the economic output and
productivity of the "strong" (i.e., the economically competent,
competitive, advantaged, etc.) and if so, why? Do the strong have any
moral obligation to support the weak in any way? Why?
