While I’m all in favor of things like single-payer insurance and social security, what makes these work is that they’re not inspired by morals or ethics. They were designed to help deal with problems in our society, not to force morals on others.

There is a distinct difference between ending slavery and ensuring equality. Denying equal rights is a way to keep people on different tiers, denying true freedom to those who deserve to be free. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated for speaking out in favor of a nation that had equality for all. That fight continues today, and sadly is taking place inside Congress and state legislation.
