RE: Stop Beating around the Bush...
If it appears that I am baiting you, don't take that which you perceive as bait. Let it pass.
As I understand what you said, you think that the majority of people are not smart enough to run their lives effectively. That being the case, then compassionate, intelligent people must care for those people who cannot care for themselves. Is that a fair characterization?
My response is that I assume that all men are created equal. I make no exception. Even a brainless microcephalic is still a human and deserving of human consideration. No more, no less. I do not believe in protected classes. I think that is exactly anathema to my first sentence. When we make politics out of exceptionalism, we create a society in which all people are equal but some are more equal than others. That is the first step to enslavement, whether from the right or left, I don't give a damn.
