13. self-interest
only in the sense that if the people who live in the same state with me want to secede from the nation instead of (or to avoid) actually being fair and equitable and not letting corporations and the fascist types destroy both the environment and the people then their values are so diametrically opposed to mine that I would not feel as though it was my country and I would not want to live there. Lots of fair and equitable policies are not actually in my self interest (seeing as how I fall into an income bracket which describes only 15% of the US population, have quite good health insurance, and actually get a tax break because of the f**ked up capital gains tax system in this country) but that doesn't mean I don't support them 100%.
