well, this ought to be a good thread, what with the urgency and importance of the topic... so anyway I posit that freedom is the most primitive and the most important, i.e. to be valued above all other less primary values.

thoughts.

and btw, of course I have a shpeal (sp?) as to why and counter arguments thought out... but I want to hear others first.

oh, I'm going to double post this in politics, seeing as how this issue is relevant in both forums, and different people only read certain forums, or are much more likely to read specific forums.

I guess that's not allowed (or that's what I've been told) but I don't see the problem.

what is this freedom you speak of though... freedom to do what ye will without harming others?

or freedom to do whatever the fuck we want?

I think freedom needs to be coupled with discrimination
