8. "common good"

is a concept that Republicans and right-wingers clearly don't understand. It has to affect them personally before it means something to them and sometimes they are even oblivious to the concept that other people might need help with the same thing too and that they may not have all the same resources and/or advantages they do.

We need a massive campaign to remind people where things like roads, police, fire departments, schools, etc. come from and how they are provided for. Most people think it's great to continually have their taxes cut until their utility bills go up, school fees go up, potholes don't get repaired, etc.
