  1. Ron’s back on his home turf. Good article. Arguing that ‘the government should refrain from restricting the peoples freedom’ is preferable to ‘government should impose my personal ethics on everyone’.

  2. Protoplasm politics gives me the creeps. Abortion, euthenasia, stem-cells, yuck, it all makes me want to puke.

    Juat another adult sounding off.

  3. Doug, you say that now… but when you start suffering from Alzheimer’s…

  4. “Arguing that ‘the government should refrain from restricting the peoples freedom’ is preferable to ‘government should impose my personal ethics on everyone’.”

    Yeah! Can’t wait til a Reason contributor takes on those repressive mugging and assault laws. Imagine, restricting a citizen’s freedom because some busybody thinks beating the tar out of someone and taking their wallet is “unethical”.

    Utilitarian ethics are anti-human and therefore anti-liberty.

  5. I’ll still have the creeps, I just won’t know what the creeps is.

  6. No, see, it’s only politicizing when you’re wrong. When you’re right, it’s science and common sense.

  7. “The continuing struggle over stem cell research highlights the dangers of politicizing biomedical science. Various lines of research should be pursued simultaneously in order to have the best chance of discovering effective future treatments.”

    But, umm, Ron, that *is* a political position, isn’t it?
