Most importantly, the last line of your post I'm referring to, is a paraphrasing of the main goal of communism & socialism. 'Sacrificing for the greater good for all.' Sacrifice your land, food, water, and especially money, or even your life if it means someone else will be doing better.
"ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country." -JFK
"Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals." -MLK JR.
"Freedom does not come without a price. We may sometimes take for granted the many liberties we enjoy in America, but they have all been earned through the ultimate sacrifice paid by so many of the members of our armed forces." - Charlie Dent
"The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living, and the get-rich-quick theory of life." -Theodore Roosevelt
"If you can't stand a little sacrifice and you can't stand a trip across the desert with limited water, we're never going to straighten this country out." Ross Perot
Sacrifice for the greater good has been a theme of this country since it was founded. I am willing to bet that you don't have kids. It is not necessary to have children to understand sacrificing for others but it is impossible to have them and not understand it.
