Comment: I don't think you can be too dogmatic with it all.

I don't think you can be too dogmatic with it all.

My ancestors stole food to live and were deported from England for it. I do not consider what they did to be wrong but it was stealing (which is wrong but not in this instance).

I do believe in Natural rights in that all people should be free to do as they feel in life (even if I do not like it) as long as it does not affect others.

Who could be against this ideal? (quite a few people as it turns out).

Lord Acton, Lord Chief Justice of England, 1875 - "The issue which has swept down the centuries and which will have to be fought sooner or later is the People v. The Banks."
