The phrase “the ends justify the means” is more relevant today than ever before. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez famously said on a CNN 60 Minutes interview with Anderson Cooper:
If people want to really blow up one figure here or one word there, I would argue that they’re missing the forest for the trees. I think that there’s a lot of people more concerned about being precisely, factually, and semantically correct, than about being morally right.
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
She hits the nail on the head like always because let’s face it – we need free health care for all, free education for all, free housing for all. We shouldn’t have homeless people so every homeless person should have their entire life funded and financed. We shouldn’t keep immigrants out so we should let everyone in regardless of their work experience, age, gender or country of origin (except Russians).
Whether or not we’re able to do this or pay for it is irrelevant. We need to get it done. Some entitlements cost millions, some cost billions, others cost trillions. Money is money – the amount is simply irrelevant. That’s why it is simply more important to be morally right and do the right thing, than it is to be factually accurate in your methods of getting it done. Wishful thinking is productive and we need more of it.
