I know I'm somewhat biased on this point, being gay, but I've always been a big fan of Autonomy.
There are some people who base their values on Maximizing benefits and minimizing harms, or Responsibility, or Care, or Fairness, but I've always been into Autonomy.
Well, I also really respect Responsibility, knowing you have to do things, owning that and doing it, I respect nothing more.
But, besides that, I just like free choice. I say legalize drugs, alcohol, sodomy, bestiality, incest, polygamy, I don't care what satanic orgies people are having.
As long as someone is doing something that doesn't negatively affect anyone else, it seems absolutely ridiculous to me that someone can be thrown in jail for that.
I've always been pro Autonomy, but as time has gone on, I've shifted more and more that way.
The only punch I pull is with children. Yeah, make drugs and alcohol legal and everything, but say no one can use them if they're under 18.
I love choice of people, but it's better to be informed choice. Of course, some people will never have informed choice, but that's their uninformed choice to make.
I don't know why I wanted to mention it... When I thought of it there seemed more to say... I guess it's just that simple.
