When he mentioned IS MAKING OTHER PEOPLE “DO THE RIGHT THING” THE RIGHT THING TO DO? in When the “greater good” is not so good, Mel Wild gave me a kind H/T. Then Mel took an idea that I had started to develop and further developed it.
My idea? Instead of using our government to protect each other’s rights, we have allowed our leaders to use our government to force each of us to “do the right thing.”
Mel’s addition? Well, neither of us are inventing something new. So, Mel chose to use the video above. To encourage folks to listen to it, he described the video’s content. That video describes how collectivists answer this question.
Is it not a display of compassion to sacrifice our personal interests for the greater good of our society?”
Collectivists give that question an answer of “yes.” Mel’s video points out that the answer “yes”…

knowing that God’s good is not necessarily the same as our good . . . I would still say that that would be very comforting to someone living in this dystopian nightmare we are experiencing.
Do you know what negative prohibition Jesus gave most often? Fear not!
I linked you post to mine today titled: Texas Abortion Law Conundrum Revealed?
Frankly, your post argument is related to a weighty issue which I still have to dicern..
However, after reading right after posting about the Texas Abortion Law which women’s Rights acivists are sounding out it violates their individual Rights, I decided to link your argument to my argument about the Texas Abortion Law..
Regards and goodwill blogging.
Will have to check out your post. Thanks for the link.
Our nation was built upon the virtues of individual responsibility and self-reliance . . . . socialism/communism is based upon the virtues of the collective ideas of Marxism.
on paper the ideals of the collective make a strong case, but in practice they don’t work. . . . while individualism does work. . . . but everything in the human condition has a time limit and I believe the US has run out of it because of greed and grab and the inevitable destruction of our strong middle class when . . . we as a nation chose progress and profit over people. . . . thus the one way trip to oblivion we are on today.
socialism will not save us . . . only when we (in reality) begin to answer the question, “am I my brothers keeper?” in the affirmative. . . . simple question, simple answer . . . and a zillion complicated reasons why we can’t/ won’t . . .
I don’t call myself either an optimist or a pessimist. I just point to Romans 8, especially Romans 8:28.
