Here's the comment I posted:
"OKLAHOMA City needs a collective plan to improve its collective health."Need I point out that collectivists don't care if the "higher authority" is the government or God, as long as it's anybody but yourself.
If Oklahoma City residents had the chance to learn to value themselves as individual human beings, they would also value their own health. Apparently The Oklahoman thinks we only have value collectively - which makes sense, considering the anti-rational morality they're always pushing.
Did they consider that claiming Oklahoma City needs a "collective" plan to do anything is an insult to anyone who is confident of his competence to think for himself? Or would they simply respond that we should all be relying on a "higher authority"?
All they care about is turning us into another Detroit.
