Comment: leave government out of it

leave government out of it

A social conservative believes that tradition, or community, or religion, or belief systems establish and reinforce community morality. Individuals look to something other than government force for their moral compass. In a well-functioning community, those "forces" are often also backed up by laws, but not necessarily so.

Voluntariness and Coercion are not mutually exclusive of respect for tradition and morality.

In fact, if we get the government out of the way, we are going to need to rely more heavily on our own community morality, not less. Castle libertarianism seems to be in denial about this.
