All of us learn to socialize as children. From the home we all are taught to share, especially with younger family members and friends. Most learn that the reluctance to share and be fair with possessions or food, can result in time out or some form of punishment. In school we learn not only to share, but to cooperate for the common good. However, there are always children who really do not have the mind to share, and exhibit minor forms of anti-social behavior. Sometimes, children even resort to sneaky behavior to hide or deceive others into thinking that they actually have a basis for their selfish behaviors. Eventually, some will even win converts to the cause, of course, it is a form of deception because the perpetrator still really does not want to share any real assets or food, but is willing to dole out just enough to make their accomplices think that they are getting some reward or special treatment or favors.
Now to a point, some competitive behaviors are reinforced later on in school, because those who learn to be popular or good at persuasion are acknowledged to be savvy, street wise, or a budding leader. If the child has any repressed anti-social inclinations, the reward can reinforce even a further detachment in order to achieve social gains. It becomes more like a game with only winners and no losers, so the behavior becomes finally acceptable.
Such is the case with the GOP. They have gotten away with altering the economic system by short circuiting the reforms after the Great Depression. Killing measures like Glass-Steagall and Usury Laws. There were anti-racketeers laws, once enforced, to hold down monopolies and loan sharking. But the economic barracudas of the Far Right figured out how to make the Fox the boss of the Chicken Coup by merger and proxy.
So now we have bred a bunch of spoiled brats, who think that they have executive rule from the Silver Spoon that they were born with in their collective mouths. Even fatty boys, and water wieners can join the White Boys Club if they pay proper homage to the Queen Bees, like in Middle School.
So now we have the Party of No instead of the Party of Know. The world goes back to being flat, science is just a theory (but they use an Iphone) and women and children are paternal property that may deserve support if they kow tow to Loan Arrangers. The Party of No Queers or Steers -- but Oxycontin and designer Beers.
