Do you know how to readSome guy: hurr durr, wimmin shouldn't drive because of their powerful baby hormones.
Gus/Biccies: people only dunk on him to virtue-signal to the in-group.
I'm gonna type up a solid response to this soonwhat are the top 7 best points he's ever made biscuits/gus? choose the top 7 so we don't have to wade through the chaff.

Or are you functionally illiterate and you've used voice to text software to post here the past decade
Thirdform may be a barrage of insults that intentionally ignore your points in favor of his own agenda, but at least he makes a nominal show of keeping up with the conversation
I like his impassioned explanations of the value added by all the conservative stuff a progressive minority fancy dispensing with: Chesterton's Fence applied to eg marriage, God, duty. He uses his learning to expose a vast hinterland of meaning and practice that is being pushed out of view
One of the reasons they don't like him is because they think his emphasis of individual responsibility minimises the role of the system and has unrealistic expectations of what an individual can achieve... But he does repeatedly say that all of this self-making stuff is difficult, we're fundamentally flawed and we fail all the time, which is a lot more charitable than his opponents tend to be (one strike and you're out, as far as many of them are concerned)

Who said I was in favor of legalising marijuana?so why don't you convert to salafi islam and be internally consistent?
Might it be that you are a liberal degenerate who can't conquer his own desires? Who is just a product of this progressivism you superficially claim to be against. You neither have the agrarian austerity nor the discipline engendered by your society remaining quasi-feudal.
Being in favour of gay marriage, legalising marijuana, yet pontificating about the loss of traditional family values. American and Canadian decadence in a nutshell. Face it, the 'camel herding uneducated bedouins' have beaten you at yer own game. They are well aware that they don't need to be in favour of anything modern, no extra heart ache and pain necessary to make cumbersome unworkable syntheses.
Just as hypocritical as the left you lambaste, biccies.
Again, all the pitiful sloppy seconds of the classical conservative right can do is troll and culture war the left. This is hardly a ringing endorsement for the apex of western civilisation. Another goal to the bedouins.

As for the way of the Bedouin, I'm with Zizek: it's almost impossible to put the liberal genie back in the bottle
I really don't think there's much intrinsic connection or conflict between marijuana/gay marriage and "family values"
We all know gay families and stoner dads that embody healthy cultures of mutual obligation and care.
whats the ideal religous character?Because you see traditionalism as a choice in the market of possibilities. It's entirely myopic and amerocentric.
Traditionalism, in the sense that the rest of the world understands it is cosmological and providential, not political. or more rather, the politics are sublimated to the cosmology and the religious providence.
Gay marriage is in conflict with family values not because gay couples are in conflict with concepts of mutual care (no religious traditionalist with a brain would argue this) but because they are a violation of the metaphysical necessity of the family as a unit for raising the ideal type of religious character.
