IS A PRETTY COMMON theme these days. So, in aid of his reception, I’m going to lay out this neat little aphorism, so he might be able to understand.

Got it? Just because you need something doesn’t mean you deserve to have it. And basing your public policy on needs rather than deserts is the road to oppression, inequity, and tyranny.
Keep it in mind, wouldja?
