“In this modern day, self sufficiency is a delusion of the ego.”
- James G. Mason, JamesGMason.com
Liberals like me have been trying to communicate the following for years. The philosophy of taxation's effect on all of us, rich or poor, is infrequently understood and many false assertions come from this misunderstanding. Warren is actually speaking (video below) about a type of person, with a particular standard of morality. I think these people she is pointing her finger at are those who never properly learned to share in childhood, and so never learned that because we share we all benefit. They then take for granted, for the rest of their lives that the resources they need to succeed will continue to "fall from the sky," and so "Why share?"
They are the exploiters who often get rich by using our resources and our desperation for jobs. Unreasonably they then scream for less government, as they are under a delusion inspired by greed that they had not been hoisted into their comfortable leather seats by taking advantage of our government. A government through which we collectively chose to provide the resources they have used. Warren is speaking below about an ethic that is harming us all. This corrupt ethic also brings us corporations in America with little loyalty to their communities, the first corporations to out-source our communities to their economic death.
Elizabeth Warren understands liberal philosophy and has an eloquent description to aid in understanding the core of one of our most pressing economic issues. If she runs for president, I'll support her over anyone in current contention for the office. See video.
|Senator, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.
