Let’s say that you own a little business in a medium sized town. Every few months, some armed guys come around and demand some of your profits. If you don’t pay, they say they’ll shut down your business and make your life difficult.
So, you pay.
Every so often some of their kids come in and buy a few things with their allowance. Being the nice guy that you are, you treat them as well as any other customer.
Is that hypocritical? Even worse, is it wrong of you to demand that these thugs stop taking your hard earned money while not turning away their children?
If you’re a liberal who enjoys bashing entrepreneurs who run a clinic it is.
