No One's Needs Outweigh Those of Another...

When people say "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the individual," semantically, reasonably, and otherwise, all they are saying is that "the needs of some are more important than the needs of others."

It gets even more worrisome when you realize that for most of these folks, you could substitute the word "some" with any of the following terms:

-"politically connected"
-"People that I agree with"
-"psychopathic, but well-spoken"

Can you think of any others?  Any more horrifying than this list?

  1. In many ways, its the age-old tribal instinct. The needs of me and mine outweigh the needs of you and yours. The only thing that changes are the definitions.
