Isn't it amazing that the "politically-correct" social relativists consider people that hold committed personal beliefs to be "close-minded," and are constantly telling us that we should be more open-minded.
I shouldn't be so closed minded about what I let my young children consider to be a fun form of play; that I should allow them to play on the highway if they wish.
I shouldn't be so closed minded about what I let my family eat for dinner; that I should allow them to eat arsenic with their broccoli, and cocaine with their cereal.
I shouldn't be so closed minded about what music that I listen to; that I should allow them to listen to mind-desensitizing rock music like everybody else.
Ahh, you say, but the first two of the above examples are bad for a person, so you fail to see the connection to the third example. Let me give you a hint, open-minded wunderkind: what would it take for the third example to be analogous to the first two examples? You got it! You're a genius! Write down the date of this momentous occasion! You are finally realizing that some people consider rock music to be as damaging to a person's well-being as is playing in the road and eating poison. Let me say it again; you are positively a genius.
Of course, I, in my narrow-mindedness, never tell "politically-correct" social relativists what they should do, as long as their private actions have no detrimental or forced effect on others (including myself).
But, in spite of constitutionally-protected personal FREEDOM, they, in their open-mindedness, constantly seem to have the right to tell me what I should do.
Thank you very much, but I would prefer to have another Civil War.
It is not the freedom to promote a point of view which is right or wrong. It is the point of view which is right or wrong. The freedom to promote a point of view is never, in itself, wrong. That which poisons the human condition on this planet is always wrong.
