I do teach my children to think for themselves

In fact, I recently had a talk with one of them about the dangers of democray and used slavery as the example. Just because 51% of the population thinks something is right does not make it right. Slaves in the U.S. were victims of the majority.

I also think that locking someone up for a victimless crime is pointless and immoral. That still doesn't mean I think it is a good idea to smoke a joint in front of my kids.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.
