[An] objection is usually expressed by a question such as: “Why should Elvis
Presley make more money than Einstein?” The answer is: Because men work in
order to support and enjoy their own lives—and if many men find value in Elvis
Presley, they are entitled to spend their money on their own pleasure.
Presley’s fortune is not taken from those who do not care for his work (I am
one of them) nor from Einstein—nor does he stand in Einstein’s way—nor does
Einstein lack proper recognition and support in a free society, on an
appropriate intellectual level.
