Greater Good

Juno put this so well, I just had to ask her if I could quote her:

I believe economic self-interest is the worst possible ground to make policy from, second only to vanity. 
I believe the greater good IS the common good, that creating policy that protects and benefits those who have the least makes a world that benefits us all. 
I know we have a responsibility as human beings to follow our own ethics in our own lives, and an obligation to protect the right of every other person to do the same.
I believe government, at some level, should be a service provider.  Not a business entity.

I think this should be a mantra for us all. I know that I forget this at times and being reminded that the greater good acutally benefits us all is important.

I'll expand later when I'm not entertaining the grandparents for the weekend.
