The Human Condition.
Liberals forget that the Human Condition is basically base. At the core of it all, people tend to look after their own self interests. Greedy? Maybe.
But generally true and non-controversial.
And we see guys like Bernie Sanders extolling the Social Contract. That agreement between the Haves [the State?] and the Have Nots that speaks to basic protections for the needy to stave off destitution.
We all know the responsibility of the 1% according to Sanders. We know what he think ‘their fair share’ is. But what of the OTHER side of the contract? The quid pro quo? In return for such safety nets, what can society expect from those who seek such protection?
You see, after the 1% provide free food for the birds of the air there is always one Bernie dude that has to ruin the party for everyone and results in the Haves just walking away.
