Word came down

The missus was upset the other day about some things that have been going on.

Her point was “you can either be equal or you can be special, you can’t be both”.

We deserve better

    You can be anything you want within the constraints of the law. But that doesn’t mean other people have to agree or kow tow to you. Like, OK you can marry anyone you like, but you can’t force someone to bake your wedding cake.

    Members of Congress have no interest in them or their special interest friends being equal. They want special, preferential benefits paid for by the rest of us.

    Strange bait, but what the heck, I’ll bite… Let’s frame this comment in terms of politics. The Federalists Papers talk about factions (special interests) that I would argue are special in the nature of their particular demands, but equal in the democratic sense. The interests of the republic are advanced when these factions, all equal before the constitution, must cooperate to accomplish the public good. Compromise usually ensues and perhaps no single, special interest gets everything they want, but the most compelling issues get taken care of. I wonder what Madison would have thought about the current role of the media in shaping and refining public debate?
