A self-centered political philosophy.
“This thing scares me, so ban it” (guns)
“This thing is difficult for me to get, so provide it.” (Healthcare)
“I want to break this law, so don’t enforce it” (drugs)
Ultra progressives seem to want both more laws (e.g., gun control) but also less punishment for breaking laws (e.g., criminal justice reform).
How can we interpret this seeming contradiction?
It appears to be a very strong hypothesis.—Joe]
