Right now they kind of want it both ways. On the one hand they’re saying, “This is a you’re-on-your-own kind of a country,” but then they also want us to have warm, fuzzy, patriotic feelings because we’re all in this together.
It doesn’t work that way.
The flip side of “Nobody owes you anything” is “Then I don’t owe anyone anything.”
I’m not sure I want to live in such a place.
