Which matters more to you, people or ideals? If this is a difficult question for you, consider this: ideals are by definition unattainable abstractions of perfection, whereas people are real and feel pain. Does this make the decision easier? You can argue about which policies would result in the greatest good for the greatest number, and human government may require such considerations, but remember that the number are people. Didn’t I say regarding the Sabbath that it was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath? Did I even support harmful policies for their own sake? Never lose sight of the fact that if it isn’t good for people, it isn’t good.
