Yes. Central planning is a major plank in the Liberal/Progressive/Leftist platform. Tyrant, too, is a word that’s starting to apply to their leaders.
There’s also a religious element in them. Human Sacrifice is dear to them. Over thirty million babies never got to see the light of day since Roe vs. Wade. That’s because they are eugenisists.
You bring up the one issue that keeps me from calling myself a libertarian. You can’t be for freedom if you aren’t for an individual right to life, liberty and property (sorry, but the compromise change from ‘property’ to ‘pursuit of happiness’ was a mistake). If there is *any* question of whether a right exists or not, it *must* be decided with any error going to the right to life, which was listed first for a reason. Therefore, if there is *any* question concerning when a life begins, the state *must* err on the side of life. To do otherwise is to claim that one person’s right to privacy supersedes another’s right to exist. That’s simply ridiculous.
Liberals/progressives are neither liberal nor progressive. They support an ancient system where the masses bow to a higher authority, which is supposedly more wise than the subjects it rules.
