According some advocates of “reproductive choice,” we should allow unethical corporations to dump tons of pollution into our air and water. We should stop telling others what do do, they say, so we should not interfere in how corporations operate. It is none of government’s business.
Oh, that is not what they meant? This is the problem with making the argument that we should “stop telling others what to do.” With the exception of anarchists, no one actually believes that. No one, including the most hard-line libertarians, believe that we should have absolutely no laws regulating what people are allowed to do. Everyone agrees that crimes such as murder, rape, arson and robbery should be illegal.
