Choosing not to go out for the night and stay in doors and watch a movie is a choice. An excellent example is people want the choice of not having to have health insurance - to me that undermines the very ideals that many complain about in the first place - living without health insurance is what made health care so expensive. Complaining about things you can't do and wouldn't be doing anyways is a mute point.<quoted text>
Do you believe as population grows we must diminish the rights of individuals to accommodate the population?
On the highways, they’re far safer today. You’re much less likely to be involved in a crash today than years ago. You must go with fatalities per million miles travelled and crashes per 100,000 to obtain accurate information comparing the time periods.
Cars are much safer today than before. With or without wearing the belt.
You still discount the right of the individual to make poor choices.
Nobody's taking away your right to kill yourself or be turned down for medial care because you don't have insurance or smoke yourself silly in your own home. There are necessary evils in this world - there always have been.
