Freedom For Everyone Else

Don’t pretend that, as a matter of principle, you love freedom, unless you also mean freedom for people you don’t like to do things you think are stupid, immoral, etc. Valuing your OWN freedom is no virtue. The lowest scumbag on the planet values that. It’s valuing the self-ownership of everyone else that is the sign of a real freedom advocate. And, I’m sorry to say, even most of the Founders fail that test.

People do some crazy shit. They smoke cigs and joints, they drink beer and whiskey, they spit on the sidewalks. Hell, a lot of them believe that government is a good thing. And just as long as they don’t force me to participate in the things they enjoy or believe in, everything’s cool.
