  •  Some people don't understand that life (13+ / 0-)

    is not like the game, "Mother, may I."  They think that public officials are secular dictators, whose access to the use of force gives them an advantage over religious moralists in the event that the latter don't succeed in having their dicta obeyed.
    There's a perception that the purpose of government is to enforce compliance, rather than serve the public that hires and pays them.
    That individuals committed to looking out for each other are a boon to the community as a whole doesn't register with people who don't know what caring for someone else means.
    They're self-centered and selfish because their social awareness is somehow impaired.
