I am suggesting that we move beyond a narrow self focus in all that we do. We should evaluate policy with the lens of the greatest good for the greatest number in our communities, states, and country. We need to move past special interest thinking, including our own.

Catholic Social Teaching takes this a step further with the Principle of the Common Good. That is, not just worrying about the greatest number, but worrying about everyone.
