Finally, I don't know anyone in my class who regards this as a problem that needs correcting. If we were to have an expensive reunion that couldn't be paid for with normal fees, I'm sure that those who have more would chip in and underwrite the expense. But that would be voluntary and everyone would expect it to be voluntary. It's noblesse oblige.
Here is my theory. Our basic notions of what is fair and unfair and which problems need correcting and which ones don't are actually very similar when we are talking about people we all know. It is only when we are talking about abstractions and amorphous groups of people ? people that we don't know ? that political ideologies pull us apart.
What do you think?
