Glenn Beck is the perfect example of the Conservative fallacy.
Having been raised with the all the benefits of an open, liberal society, he has come out with the belief that all his success is due to his own effort, and not to the structure that modern civilization created for him.
That’s what allows him and his ilk to look down on the unsuccessful: they must not be working as hard as I am. And therefore they are morally undeserving of success, or even assistance.
“How did I learn about the evils of progressivism? I educated myself. I went to the library. Books are free.”
“I’ve been on food stamps and Welfare. Anybody help me out? No.”
The essence of the modern Conservative spirit is a blind selfishness, wrapped in ignorance and piety. Jesus tells us to love one another; to reconcile that with resenting and hating other people, one has to deny reality on a fairly large scale.
