but I noticed that your arguments do rely on the need of rational mind. But I do not agree with your arguments. Let's take "Humans act to maximize their comfort." Your simplistic generalization without a real context reveal the weakness. Progressives DO act to maximize their comfort - USA let Chinese work for us. They do understand that many intellectuals would do comparatively (that is important, comparatively) worse without government jobs (say an idle astronomer.) They do understand that they do not live forever and their comfort today is more important than 15 years from now. Senior citizens agree too. Those who are receiving gov student loans agree too. Unemployed, too, would ask for help now even if inflation kicks later. MORALITY should not be overlooked.
