Just wanted to share a quote from my cousin and good friend, James H. Rolling, Jr., professor of art at Syracuse University.
“Politics is never about the struggle of good against evil. That totally misses the point of democracy and diversity. Please take the religion out of politics. Instead, politics is about the struggle for the COMMON GOOD. And what is absolutely wrong with politics today are those who are solely motivated to obstruct a fellow citizen in the good they are attempting to do. Just imagine: How many acts of kindness do we lose each day to the divisive beast that lives only to make other men and women fail?”
My sentiments exactly.
How should we define the common good? What’s your take?
