Self-Interest Trumps The Common Good
Kelly ThomasJuly 25 2011
I listened to this guy on NPR who had an essay on whether “Self-interests trump the common good.” HELLO!!! Good commentary but this is a no brainer. Of course self-interests trump the common good. And, anybody who thinks otherwise is in another galaxy I think. Example: Congress. Their self-interests trump what’s good for the common good. Hands down. The debt ceiling is the best example I know. Think right-wing fundamentalists, i. e., the Republicans. They will take a chance on the country going down the tubes just for the “next election.” Sorry MFers. And, they don’t give a f___ because they know that they can spin it in such a way that it can be blamed on others.
A bipartisan debt deal just about impossible now
