The problem with leftist ideas

on March 24, 2010

Socialism, Fascism, Marxism, Communism, Pro-Choice, all of these are leftist ideas. The problem I have with them is that these take away the idea that actions (or inactions) have consequences. When you have sex, they don’t want you to take responsibility for the potential pregnancy, instead just let someone else take that problem away. Having the government run your life or parts of your life, your retirement, your healthcare, means that you don’t have to plan, or even care how you live your life. Does anyone else see a problem with this line of thinking?
