They do (sentence 2)- they have rationalized that the cause of all problems stems from the individual's rights. They champion the state- so we call them Statists. Very nice people, some of them my friends(foreshadowing of Iced Earth - The Glorious Burden). I was totally shocked when in our discussions we got to the root of our disagreement- my indivdual rights vs their state-is-god type of deal. It still boggles my mind how one can reach that conclusion. I asked them to read one book, 'Basic Economics' by the good Doctor here. I guess I should remind them. The intelligent elders of the left leaning folks I talk to make quite a good lemon face when we breach Dr. Sowell's writings. They do not like him :)
