    But largely, I feel that my progressive stances can also be considered self-serving.

    My belief is that encouraging a strongly interdependent society, where people help other people, is in the end the best way to serve my own selfish interests. After all, the whole reason humans developed societies is that they recognized that in the long run, cooperating and depending on others is the best way to ensure the ability to pursue individual interests.

    So when I see Republicans who act in ways that seem to purely serve their self-interests, I just see people who haven't yet learned this lesson, and I want to find ways to better communicate this concept to them.
