Collectivism moralisms have no place in an agglomeration of individuals. So thinks Arnold Kling:
When people use we in today’s politics , they are doing two things.
1. Appealing to a moral entity that stands apart from and above John, Mary, or any other individual
2. Treating government as the embodiment of that higher moral entity
You can be a Masonomist and believe (1). It is a good thing to have a conscience and moral standards. It is a good thing to engage in volunteer work, to form organizations that address the needs of others, and to act unselfishly toward family and others in your community.
But government does not have to be, nor is it, the embodiment of any higher moral authority.
