    I would be interested in adding a clause that allows for sexual freedom and expression.
    To what extent? Would you reverse the decision in R v Brown, or would that type of sexual freedom/expression still not be covered by consent?

    Are you trying to suggest republicans shouldn't "hate" the monarchy just because the royals do charity work? As for charity actually, our former PM had a few things to say on charity
    Attachment 526287



    I am glad to see this will be the case, and I must say I was relieved it was you out of all the liberals, conservatives and the nat lib to take on health.
    Actually all i was saying is that nothing is gonna stop republicans hating the monarchy.

    Nah charity isn't a bad thing, unfairly high taxes for the rich is though.

    Not such thing as unfairly high taxes. If we didn't have income tax people wouldn't get paid as much as they do because of it. I veiw income tax as a tax on businesses more then anything. Also the rich owe society for their wealth and they make money on the backs of the poor so they should give that money away.

    Charity is bad because it's an ego trip. People feel good about giving a little money to charity and rich people use charity as an opportunity for a photo shoot. Generally I serverly dislike charity and think it doesn't serve a function most of the time.
    Either what they are doing should be state funded (air ambulance) or it shouldn't happen.

    It's the other way around. They make money off the backs of their own businesses, and workers gain from the jobs those businesses provide.

    SO if we stopped charity x more people would die than necessary. That's a good thing because "charity is an ego boost"?

    I disagree. People who win need people to loose, people who loose don't need people to win.
    The rich generally get lucky. Indeed there isn't a single people who didn't get rich though some form of luck.

    Charity is an ego boosting facist cult. And no people wouldn't die because if it's genuinely important the government should fund it and not rely on private citizens doing it.

    What do you think about anarchism and do you think it would be possible for a society to maintain itself without the need of hierarchy?

    so not allowing people to donate money to whatever cause they wish is not an anti liberal social policy?

    And i just cba, you've said so many things there that just fly in the face of common sense. i think it is therefore up to you to prove them if you wish.

    No because charity has become anti liberal.

    Common sense is subjective...

    They can, just don't expect a round of applause because you gave money to charity instead of paying it in tax.

    Well I believe in Mills harm principle, and I think in that case if those involved agreed and accepted what was happening then the state had no right to intervene. Especially with certain parties out there we need to protect sexual expression.

    The harm principle is complete rubbish tbh (Gerald Dworkin wrote a pretty excellent riposte), but I look forward to seeing this policy put into practice and unless you include something silly in the Bill, you can expect my full support.

    Anarchism for me is both unwise and unrealistic. It is unwise because of the degree of faith it puts in peoples rationality and unrealistic because i strongly believe that over time hierarchy would form anyhow simply because humans are neither socially nor biologically equal.

    Not exactly the correct thread for such a discussion, the green, Labour, or socialist equivalents would be more appropriate
