When you are able to empower people, even in minor, everyday ways, it is a very satisfying feeling. There is nothing better than helping someone transition from dependence to independence, even in ways that don’t seem important. A switch is flipped when someone learns the why and where and no longer needs to remember how. It becomes self-evident. It is also a win-win, when you can teach someone to be independent. No one loses. You get people more capable making bigger contributions. Even more, when it is you being taught and becoming independent in some new area, it is a very satisfying feeling.
This is the heart of the liberal agenda.
