14. Ryan, and people like him, are the ones who demand that dignity must be sacrificed...1.

... for a morsel or two of food.

Ryan's problem, along that of many of his cohorts, is that he stumbled on an the (sophomoric) works of an author called Ayn Rand, mistook her message of "let the poor die" for sound economic philosophy and, since then, has been attempting to foist it on mainstream America. And gullible people have bought it, not realizing that the people he would eliminate from society are THEM.

I urge anyone who wants to understand Ryan's message to sit themselves down with friends and play a few games of Monopoly. At the end of the game, the money will be in the hands of one or two players and the rest will be out. This is a parallel for what is happening in America and in other countries that are "going conservative". Wealth and power are in the hands of a relative few while the rest of the people are suffering. The power people at the top will attempt to justify this in all sorts of ways, but the truth is that they are playing a game for fun, and they don't give a hoot who suffers. It's time for the rest of us to wake up.
