As if 'rights' somehow constitute freedom. It is not the task of the government to dictate or enforce equality. If you are being discriminated by a corporation because they are not hiring you because you are of african-american descent, are a homosexual, or simply have bad breath, go public, and see if society cares. If they will, they'll boycot the corporation, and nothing like that will ever happen again.

What about Polygamy then ?
And also that woman who was arrested for marrying a 15 year old earlier this week ?
Shouldn't they be free ?
HU-210 said:What's wrong with polygamy? If it is a financially viable option, why not? In fact, if one of the three (supposing there are just three )takes care of the kids, and the other two work, this might actually be a great option to ensure the proper education of children.
If the parents of the 15 year old agree, than it should be allowed. The age barrier now lies at 18. The age is debatable.
Hmm.. You won't catch me defending morality. I believe in responsibility. The material property (I haven't made my mind up about intellectual property yet) and the safety of each individual should be enforced by the government. That, and perhaps some minor things, like taking care of the roads and such. They should not, however, be a moral-enforcing institute.
