There are those who believe there is an original condition (from which rights proceed) that is exclusive from the resentments, privileges wants and needs of the present (in which their own lives are deeply invested, such as the results/effects of slavery and Jim Crow) which we find so taxing. Some folk also assume that any of the prospects, incentives and ‘assets’ upon which all social outcomes depend flow only from self-interested enterprise and give little credit to prevailing conditions that prohibit many from having “bootstraps” with which to pull themselves up, and/or injuries of the “arms” of access (available prospects) used to prosper. Sen. Paul Ryan, for instance would refuse to expend the revenue or activate the services that ameliorate intractable social ills (unwilling to admit that private industry alone cannot manage these problems), as Republican governors seem to do. I have no doubt that Sen. Ryan would be dumbfounded by the idea that the privilege he enjoys is, in many respects, undeserved, or that his own interests are best served by comprehensive federal grants and funding.
Affordable health insurance access, middle class tax break, tuition loan cost controls, and less war mongering are good. More transparency of questionable security practices (public advocacy in FIFA, for instance), demilitarization of "intellegence" industry, and infrastructure banking/lending are yet to be accomplished.
Prison peonage has become a public 'services' problem.
