  •  Good observation! (5+ / 0-)

    There's a shred of the unending "war of northern aggression" that threatens to loom large in those arguments.  

    The common complaint is "you can't tell me what to do", that then it transforms into "we want the government to stop you from doing something we disapprove of".  Freedom from government intrusion requires balance against the prevention of demonstrable harms.  The word "demonstrable" being key!  If there is no demonstrable harm, there should be no government intrusion.

    The other aspect is separate-but-equal - and well, we all know how well that didn't work.

    I think our grand experiment will continue to be successful as long as we remember our history.
