As I was growing up on a farm in southwest Missouri, I would discuss the issues of the day with my mother. About the time I was in the 6th grade, Canada adopted “socialized medicine.” It seemed like the Christian thing to do to me.
My parents would always comment, “They forget about human nature.”
At that time, I was a Christian and trying to live a good life (most of the time). Human nature didn’t seem that bad to me.
I now see what they meant. It is human nature to feel entitled to entitlements.
