    I agree that it's oversimplified but I also agree that I don't understand the conservative argument. By all means educate me.
    That all attempts at establishing a political philosophy from a priori principles are fruitless and that the idea of individual rights can only survive in a culture and society that holds common values. That markets are fine but need a moral basis and a strong society to underpin them else they encourage rampant individualism and a decline of society. Becoming a corporation does not reduce your obligations to others. A corporation which pollutes is not likely to be viewed well by a conservative who agrees with Burke that the social contract's signatories mostly include the dead and the unborn. Conservatives don't view the right to sell yourself as a sex slave or the right to produce pornographic material as conducive to freedom at all (hence, they will not agree that to be free to sell drugs is real freedom in any sense of the word) since these "liberties" tend to undermine the very principles of the society that protects them. "It is allegiance which defines the condition of society, and which constitutes society as something greater than the 'aggregate of individuals' that the liberal mind perceives."

    Definitely, to be fair i wouldn't mind him being back other than the fact we don't know if he has any other dupes.

    A priori principles may not be a great basis for a political philosophy - but they are probably a better basis than the need to prevent some perpetually imminent yet ill-defined moral decline.

    I doubt it. Anyway, the principle is not to prevent moral decline but rather to use prejudice and establishment as a way to govern the country, allowing gradual change. The conservative argument is that this then consequently results in a more stable and cohesive society.

    I look forward to you convincing Jarred and the moderation team that such a sexist party is of benefit to the house. And also what policies you have beside shagging teenage girls?

    Would you not have sex with a 17 year old?

    He did not engage in illegal underage sex, he engaged in illegal underage sex with a prostitute.

    Pah, Jarred's opinion matters not. Shagging teenage men is another policy...

    What? the legal age is like 13/14... it wasn't even proven he paid for her, it isn't illegal unless it was proven which it wasn't.

    The legal age for prostitution is higher though... if he paid for her.

    Yes but it was never proven thus you can't go calling it illegal when it is still "alleged".
