- Existence is inherently amoral; there is no a priori reason to assume that a certain behaviour is morally correct just because it’s “The Way That It Is” or “The Way That It Has Always Been Done.”
- If there is any one thing that an individual can be said to own, then surely to God it’s their own body. As such, they can treat it in any way they see fit, and if you do not agree with their judgements, then you are free not to treat your own body that way.
- Government should be based on what’s good for actual people as they exist in the real world, rather than Platonic ideals of the way that they should be. In other words: policies that are good for families, rather than “The Family;” or for children rather than “The Child.”
- Everyone is a unique individual; however, a government which administers to a population on an individual-by-individual basis is going to be as unsuccessful as a doctor who treats her patients cell-by-cell. Some form of collectivism is always necessary.
- All other things being equal, wealth will tend to accumulate where it is already concentrated. Massive income disparity is an inevitable feature of a totally free market.
- Corporations are machines to make money; this is their only function. As such, it is completely unreasonable to expect that they will be even remotely interested in self-regulation; what’s more, if they have a chance to influence the government to their own financial advantage, they will do so. Totally free markets will inevitably degenerate into crony capitalism.
- A society’s health is measurable by an individual’s ability to achieve their morally-deserved station in life, regardless of their rank at birth.
- Any policy which cannot be defended using rational argumentation based upon established facts should never be implemented.
- Ideologies are at best a set of simplifying assumptions and stated values. When ideology conflicts with reality, ideology must fall.
