Opinions Based on Convenience
How do we develop social/political viewpoints? Do we just defend the things we want to be able to do?
Argument from person who smokes. "Stop taxing my cigarettes. That's a government intrusion."
Argument from same person who doesn't like that SUVs block their view on the road. "Get those SUVs off the road. They're dangerous and bad for the environment."
