Are you buying that society is fittest when people have the most individual freedom?I support the government's involvement because my political philosophy is rooted in concern for societal fitness rather than individual rights.
I disagree. The State should serve the Corporation and create a healthy business environment.I don't share your assessment of market protectionism. The State should work closely with Corporations for the good of society, by ensuring that the Corporations support the State's goals.
Morality should not be legislated. We the people form the government, but we should not use the government to set law that defines good behavior. Only limit behavior that impacts another's life, liberty or pursuit of happiness.I disagree. We are the government; it is an expression of our united Will as a nation. To say that the government cannot decide what is healthy and what is moral is to say that we, as a culture, cannot define these values for ourselves.
I totally disagree with this. We are a stronger nation economically, culturally, morally, militarily than 50 years ago. There are degeneracies and shortcomings, but the overall health is better. The rise of drugs and rock'n'roll had its negatives and it's positives. It is an expression of pure individualism. We have a high divorce rate and single parent families, but most have nothing to do with drugs. Still, we have non-traditional strengths with inventions of the digital age and raising kids in spite of it all. The real danger is too much government spending.This opens the door to blatant defiance of cultural norms and other forms of degenerate behavior and leads to a sharp decline in the unity and fitness of a nation. I think the American people have been in such a state for the last fifty years, and every day I am reminded of the toll that it takes on our values and our ability to exert ourselves politically, economically, and militarily. I do not believe that this is a reality we must accept; if human rights or civil rights interfere with what is necessary for power, for survival, then I believe that it is those rights which must give way.
