A lot of people are upset with Donald Trump because he doesn’t believe that lower taxes are the be-all end-all of human flourishing. What he seems to think instead is that upper middle-class white liberals can probably afford to pay just a wee bit more every April.

I agree that they have too much extra cash on their hands. I am not a libertarian. Some appetites are intrinsically disordered, and it is the proper role of the state to rein them in.
