    No. Bias makes some beliefs appear selfish, and others not so. Thus, all beliefs are selfish, or all beliefs are not selfish. There must be absolutes in order to erase the obfuscation of bias.

    Indeed, if you use your child to spread ANY belief, and that child has no idea what it is, from communism to capitalism, then it is selfish and wrong.

    Here. Let's have an example. With all due respect, you are "very liberal."

    According to your pov, will you list any political views that are not selfish, and which ones are?

    It has nothing to do with selfish and not selfish. Your question equated using your child to regurgitate hate speech as the same as what this mother did. I pointed out that's not true.

    So if you told your kid to stand up for prayer in class even though they didn't want to (in your words exploitation) it's equivilent to having your kid stand up for beleifs in racial superiority? That the two are equal because of the parental coercien?

    Basically it's exploitation, just not that bad?

    And some conservatives would like you to believe they can read minds.

    Well, most of them claim to have a direct line to God, so maybe they can.

    I don't personally consider wanting equal treatment to be selfish.

    So in that context___I'm guilty as charged.
    Some libertarian you are.

    Apparently one of those 'convenient' Libertarians. If it's convenient for her to believe in Libertarian positions, she will. However, if it isn't, she won't.
