Now anyone who has read this blog knows my stance on “Spreading the Wealth” aka Socialism. There’s another “Spreading the” philosophy that I also oppose. Its “Spreading the Morality” that is Social Conservatism, and wanna see it in action, look at Rick Santorum.
Now my problem with social conservatism is using the power of government to force others to live by your values.
General principles are:
Personally I’m pro-life, and I see abortion as murder, however my full thoughts are here on the subject.
- Oppose both eugenics (inheritable genetic modification) and human enhancement (transhumanism) while supporting bioconservatism
Man playing God, hmm. On a government scale on any of those I oppose, so I would have to agree. Also as a Primal eater I prefer natural food, not lab food.
Now this is an easy one, unless you’re marrying kids or animals, I could care less who you marry. Just don’t tell me which consenting adult anyone can marry. It’s not anyone’s business.
- Support the continued prohibition of recreational or medically non-beneficial drugs
You’re body is your property, like the money you earn, what you do with it as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone, is your business. Leave the house, you become a societal problem.
- Oppose prostitution, premarital sex, and non-marital sex
- Object to pornography and what they consider to be obscenity or indecency.
See above. Telling me what to do with my life is as bad as taking my money in taxes and using it as you see fit (Spread the Wealth). Except you’re taking my choice instead of my money. This is my problem with Social Conservatism.
