Unfortunately many who take our opponents position aren’t content with merely holding adhering to their own view of what’s human and what’s acceptably “natural.” They demand that the rest of us accept their concept of humanity, too. People like Mr. Pound and Mr. Kass want Congress and other government bodies to impose their will on society. Because they, better than we, know what’s best for us.
Of course even if they’re right and I’m wrong about the morality and propriety of some of these issues, a free society isn’t really free at all if it doesn’t include the freedom to make what some may believe are bad decisions.
Our opponents want to legislate away what they believe are the bad decisions. To borrow from H.L. Mencken, they believe they need to rule sports in order to save it.
