>>"I'm sorry this makes you so angry, but one thing I keep in mind is that if a person makes me angry or disgusted, then I need to look in the mirror and figure out just why..."<<
Psychobabble if I ever heard it.
I think on this issue alone I have come to understand why a lot of FReepers get so hostile towards libertarian ideas. There is a point where the "freedom" of individuals HAS to be weighed against the health of society. I still basically believe that people should be free to do whatever they want as long as they're not hurting anybody, but sometimes making the determination as to what point individual behavior hurts somebody else can be as elusive as the definition of "is" to a Clinton.

("Having the right to do a thing is not at all the same thing as being right in doing it.")
Just an observation. My
problems center in me. If I have a problem with you, I need to understand why
, not just give in to the emotion behind it.
IOW, it doesn't matter what you think about me, but what I think about you.
