The greater good

Many use the greater good only when it matches their own good.

They want to avoid changing their ways.

They aim at pushing back a difficult conversation.

They prefer not to confront their own fault.

And so, they claim that it is for the good of the whole, that they cannot do otherwise, that it’s what makes the most sense.

It’s a cheap excuse to preserve their own comfort.
