The Common Wealth or Special Interests
A person, political party or society can either be interested in a prosperous society and the common wealth or be interested in control and special interests.
They cannot truly be interested in both at the same time, because control and special interests, by their very nature, seek to establish one group’s will over another.
While it is natural and expected that people in a free society should advocate for and protect their own self interests, they cannot claim they are working towards the greater good and the common wealth by doing so, especially when they intend on using government or industry control to further their goals at the expense of others.
The common good and the common wealth is best served by creating a fair marketplace of ideas and commerce where everyone can participate, not just those who have political or corporate favor.
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
