A Rational Choice

As the philosopher John Rawls has reemphasized his A Theory of Justice, we do not vote for Social Security and welfare assistance out of love for Washington civil servants. Being human and realizing we are subject to the unknown perils of unemployment and destitution, we cannily opt for the mutual reinsurances of the modern welfare state, knowing that, but for grace of God, the bell that tolls could be tolling for us. Your typhoid is my typhoid and we are all, so to speak, citizens of the same Hiroshima.

Paul Samuelson, Economics from the Heart, Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Publishers, San Diego 1983, p. 55.
