I know this may seem like a bit of an odd question but I’ve been wondering about it for the past few days and for some reason I can’t escape the feeling that it (atheism) would be a rather ‘conservative’ point of view (that is, at least in title), and yet I’m constantly being called a liberal because of my social and political leanings. I'm just wondering what your views are on this.
PS: I’ll be gone for a few days but I will catch up with this thread when I return.
So, basically you are saying that there are ignorant people on the street that would resort to physical violence because of what I am saying, like all the kids on this thread react with emotional lashing out at my argument. That would be pretty stupid considering the laws in this country. I am not afraid of a fist fight and I am not really concerned if my words about how the mob should not institutionalize violence makes people feel bad. I think that should be clear to you by now.
It is not immature to point out the obvious faults in institutionalized violence. Being a bully is immature and that is what the socialistic mob is, a big bully.
You don't have a moral right to life at the expense of someone else. Sure you have a legal right, but I am not in any disagreement with anybody about what the laws are, Park.
Personal liberty does not oppress anybody. Your so called oppression is fabricated as an excuse to validate your institutionalized violence, just like your so called exploitation.
We humans are smarter, well, some of us are, than having to take money from some to give to others to solve the above problems you cry and whine about.
I compassionately take care of people daily, at the tax payers expense, that are demonstrations of our failed institutionalized welfare state. Enabling dependence on government doesn't work. The way to help these people is by respecting all of our individual rights and empowering those that will work to take care of themselves and their loved ones. Insurance can be affordable, but try and tell that to the countless patients of mine that purchase health insurance, if at all, only after cigarettes, tattoos, IPhones, shoes, gold teeth and who knows what else. We shouldn't just pay for these people to live like this.
