My stance on Civil Liberties
Just for those who can't or won't think for themselves, here is my stance on civil liberties.
1) All civil liberties are coequal (for you Americans, check your ninth amendment).
2) To support point number 1, it is necessary that there be limits on civil liberties, and those limits must be reasonable time, place, or manner restrictions. (My reasons for supporting limits are actually quite complex and deal with high level abstractions that are incomprehensible to those who do not understand how all rights are coequal to begin with.)
3) Idiot lawmakers almost invariably get it wrong in trying to impose limits.
My stance on the second amendment is:
4) Considering that ninety-eight percent of Americans don't properly understand the first amendment, why should any more of them understand any of the others any better?
