I am going to make a comment not directed at anyone specifically just an observation. No one ideology nor political party can lay exclusive claim to the moral high ground. None! We ALL want to help people. We ALL want the best outcomes for all. Claims from any individual to the contrary, i.e. “I believe this way because I CARE about people” is an insult to those that care equally but believe in an alternate path. THIS attitude is the root of angry discourse on this forum and in society in general. Contrary to popular meme, we ALL care about each other, we just disagree on the methods.
I’ll give one example, Car safety regulations; YES, some save lives but ALL of them increase the price of automobiles. And that cost doesn’t come out of profits that benefit the investors. It raises the costs of new AND used cars out of reach of those with limited means. So “No Car” may mean “No Job.” Or it might mean the car that person buys is a literal death trap because they cannot afford anything better. If it does come from the investors, some of those investors are pension or mutual funds that provide retiree income. That is the flip side of the argument. Who do you wish to help? Who do you wish to hurt?
We can, will and should disagree. That’s OK. Answers come from rational, thoughtful, discussion of all the points.
