      Government should generally stay out of people’s lives. But, aside from anarchists, just about everyone, on all sides of the political divide, agrees that one role of government is to enact and enforce laws, one of the most basic of which is the prohibition against killing innocent people.

That is what freedom and liberty is about, isn’t it? Not fascism telling us what and where our morals should me
