“Life in general has never been even close to fair, so the pretense that the government can make it fair is a valuable and inexhaustible asset to politicians who want to expand government.”
— Thomas Sowell (via thevocalibertarian)
This is complete;y backwards. We fix things BECAUSE they are broken, we address injustice BECAUSE it is unfair, yet modern Conservatives claim the exact opposite. Literally. Above. Read it for yourself.
You can’t be empathetic and not want to right a wrong, reverse an injustice or make an unfair situation fair. You just can’t. And government exists to do collectively what we as individuals can’t do. And, yes, this includes righting wrongs, making unfair situations fair.
Conservatives don’t understand. Well, at least not this current crop of extremists in control of the Republican party…
