My near heart attack "for the greater good"

I was talking on the phone to my "nephew" (long time bff's younger brother) and he said he liked the idea of Obamacare because it is......"For the greater good"......

I about had a heart attack! I talked to him for two hours explaining how the greater good usually ends up being the for the greater not so good. I tried to remain calm and rational so as to not scare him away, but my god, my heart almost jumped out of my chest!

Anyways, he asked a lot of questions and remained involved in the conversation, I will be sending him all sorts of dystopia "for the greater good" literature for X-mas now. I had been wondering what to get him for Xmas anyways.

Can you imagine? Such language from someone so young...

For the greater good....What a rotten thing for a child to say.
