If you’ve got a business, you did not build that–somebody else made that happen. The Internet did not get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off of the Internet. The point is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together. -Quoted from the Free Beacon
Notice how easily we slip from “somebody else made that happen,” to “the government made that happen?” In the mind of the left, “somebody else,” is never a neighbor, a friend, a parent, a spouse, a child, or a church. It’s always —and only— the government. “The government,” is the only source of people who will help, the only source of people who are moral, the only source of people who care in our entire society.
The government. To the left, it’s church and community and business and force all rolled into one.
