Here's a fun game that I like to call, "Say Something Just As Meaningful!"
An unfailing disciple of the religious right who takes WND articles at face value wrote: As a quasi-libertarian.....
"As a quasi-Jesuit....."
"As a quasi-astronaut....."
"As a quasi-defensive back for the San Francisco 49ers....."
As a quasi-libertarian, I have reservations about the Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s, to say nothing of quotas and affirmative action. I believe that people have the right to be stupid, and even, within very broad legal limits, to be morally misguided. For example, I think people should be able to rent or not to rent, to sell or not to sell, for any reasons they choose, including very bad ones. Which means that I believe people have the right to refuse service to blacks, Irish, Jews, Catholics, and/or, yes, Mormons. (My hope would be that the market would eventually discipline such moral obtuseness, since Catholic money and Mormon money and blacks’ money is, equally, money, and since, in a competitive economy, people who turn down the money of whole large groups and alienate large sectors of their potential market will, in the long term, lose or at least marginalize themselves. But even if they survive and prosper, and even in the short term, they have that right.)
But that said, again, as a quasi-libertarian I think it obscene and immoral that governments supported segregation and Jim Crow laws. I support freedom of association, freedom of economic transaction, free exchange. Freedom. I’m glad that those laws have all been overturned. The government has utterly no business discriminating among its citizens on the basis of ethnicity or religious faith.
"As a quasi-mercantilist, I have reservations about the wanton slaughter of livestock and excessive meat consumption, to say nothing of animal cruelty. I believe that animals have the right to be free of needless suffering, to be treated humanely, and that the way we treat animals says something about our own humanity. For example, I think that keeping livestock in small pens where the only purpose of their existence is being raised to be butchered, or force-feeding animals to fatten them up for their meat, is morally questionable.
But that said, again, as a quasi-mercantilist, I love veal."
