Why Alleee is not a Right-Winger
Speaking of the "Why Liberals are Wrong" show...
I just wanted to make some things clear, as far as my values go. I know that a lot of people associate "anti-liberal" with a lot of sinister, terrible things. That's because people like to make assumptions. It's easier.
I am against sexism, and racism. I am pro-sex. Homosexuality is not a moral issue. It's reality. I am for technological progress. I am for capitalism and free-trade. I am against almost all religion. I am against tribalism and the tyranny of culture against the individual.
Which makes me a creep, I guess. I do think what I do is important. I think it's a nice thing to do to push people in the direction of taking control and responsibility for their lives. It's a good thing for people to live their livges as honestly as possible, and I know that not having beliefs is a huge step in doing so.
I know that the show causes some people, many of whom are new and maybe who haven't heard many of our other shows, to remove my banner. Thst's cool. I don't want to force people to support what they (think) they shouldn't. That's because force goes against my values.
