That’s the message of Dennis Prager’s essay posted over at Real Clear Politics. Here’s my favorite part:
The socialist idea sounded altruistic to those who began it, and it sounds altruistic to the naive who believe in it today. In practice, however, it creates self-centered individuals and a narcissistic society. So while it may have begun as a way to help others, it has come to mean a way of evading responsibility for oneself and for others.
Take that, Gregory S. Paul.
