There are points that we should all be able to agree on though. Everyone should have access to good low-cost healthcare, for instance. Everyone should have clean water. In a wealthy society, there really shouldn’t be anyone living in abject poverty. There are certain responsibilities we should all share as fellow citizens and as human beings. If we have way more than enough, we should all be willing to extend a hand to those who have nothing and at least get them closer to enough.

Teaching a man to fish is pointless if you’ve privatized all access to the water or there are no fish to catch.
