Morality Expains It

Mark Steyn has a well-written column out on why statists will push for the socialization of healthcare even if it results in some short term election set-backs. But he misses the wider issue, which is that Republicans and other alleged opponents never roll back these programs because they agree in principle that they're good. What's missing is a moral challenge to the basic premises underlying altruism and collectivism. If we're to have any chance of returning the country to its former greatness, we have to make the moral arguments for reason, egoism and individualism.
