But here’s the catch. We can only invest in such institutions when we live in genuine democracies. Not as in “places people vote” — but places in which the attitudes of equality, freedom, and justice prevail. For me to want healthcare and education for you means I must see you as a true equal, a life precisely equivalent to my own. Not as a genetic inferior — while I am a member of the super race, the tribe of the pure, who belong to the promised land. What can provide an antidote to the predatory capitalism that has left ruthlessly exploited people simmering with rage, that is misdirected by demagogues at scapegoats and imaginary demons? Only in a genuine democracy of consenting equals can safety, through great public institutions and goods, which shelter and nourish each life, truly be had. Do you see the link? Let me make it clearer.
