The High Ground
The High Ground: a speech to college students. On election day, both compassion and anger are marketable commodities that usually sweep their champions into political office. Arrayed against all forms of suffering and occupying the high ground of political morality, politicians wax eloquent about the sad conditions of some members of society, and simultaneously point at the affluence of others. They shed tears for the fellow men who are abjectly poor, but act enraged about the conspicuous consumption of the rich and famous. They orate on the Judeo-Christian ideal of brotherhood that makes every man his brother's keeper, but wallow in envy and covetousness. In short, most politicians are Jekylls and Hydes with quasi-schizophrenic alternating phases of kindness and cruelty.
