When you meet with the Dalai Lama, do you think about there being two Nobel Peace Prize laureates in the room but only he deserved his? When you call for shared sacrifice do you have trouble not laughing, knowing that neither you nor the old white men you are working with will be making any sacrifice. Nor will the people who have bought you.
You just gave a Medal of Honor to a brave man who sacrificed his hand to save his buddies fighting in your shitty little war in Afghanistan. Would you or anybody in Washington make one tenth that level of sacrifice for anybody but your self?
