4. I did some research on the concept of "the greatest good for the greatest number"


or Utilitarianism, and this concept was used to preserve the forest system for instance, when the president was Theodore Roosevelt, who was a republican for a while and also started a new party of progressives, the bull-moose party. The platform asserted that "to dissolve the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day". Roosevelt was a trust-buster.

I think republicans today go by the maxim, "the greatest good for me".
