For Our Own Good: Not Bill de Blasio
New York's candidate for mayor, Bill de Blasio, wants the general good -- which is to say diluted socialism. He voted for a dump in the East Nineties even though it was flooded during Hurricane Sandy. It is near a playground. Has De Blasio forgotten about protecting children?
Of course, naïve De Blasio felt that he was voting for the general good of the city. Lhota is against it to protect the individuals who live near it. He is dealing with people, not ideological constructs.
De Blasio wants a special tax on the rich to pay for kindergarten. He doesn't realize that a profitable society is based on the specific good, accumulating individual benefits for a cumulative general good.
De Blasio is like Obama promoting the fair share. He doesn't understand what it means to give each individual his situational and individual due.
Communism is based on the fair share and the common good. It results in a reduced share and the tempering of all good. It results in bread lines and gulags. Didn't de Blasio understand the weakness of the economies of the countries he vacationed joyfully in -- Nicaragua and Cuba?
Top-heavy, judgmental, fair-share government leads to the bread lines and imprisonment. Individual freedom is tethered to the vision of dictatorial leaders who are always saying that they are bullying us for our own good.
De Blasio, for our own good, go back to be being a public advocate. Or act like your supporter, Obama, and take his old socialistic job as a community organizer. Or act like your other backer, Bill Clinton, and harass interns in an oval office.
