As a preface, I happen to believe that all political/religious views can be summed up in two sentences. If you can't pare it down to two sentences, you don't really know what you believe. Which is fine, perhaps this exercise in reductionist theory will help you discover what you truly believe.

The Rules:
1. Comment with two sentences that define your position on the matter.
2. If you can get it one sentence, more power to you! ^_^
3. If you have a question about someone's two sentences, comment and ask! But ask nicely, or I will summarily delete your comment.
4. If you feel the dire need to explain those two sentences, bold the two sentences that define your position. I will summarily delete all comments that do not follow this rule.
5. I reserve the right to summarily delete any comment that I feel breaks the spirit of this exercise.

Of course, I'll always start off. Since we've already done same-sex marriage and abortion, it's time to hit another big one.

What's your position on privacy?

"I believe that privacy is important but overvalued in American society. No, I don't want people reading my medical history or peeping into my house, but if I'm committing a crime then by all means I would want the government to be able to wiretap me."

I want to try to make a new semi-regular feature to my blog, something I will call D2's "Tuesday's Two Sentences". I happen to believe that all political/religious views can be summed up in two sentences. If you can't pare it down to two sentences, you don't really know what you believe. Which is fine, perhaps this exercise in reductionist theory will help you discover what you believe.

Of course, I'll always start off. Since we've already done same-sex marriage, it's time to hit another big one. What's your position on abortion?

"I believe that life is precious, but it is untenable to make this issue black-and-white. The shades of grey insist that we judge on a case-by-case basis, not an inflexible law."

Yeah, Mother's Day Weekend was awesome. I'll have a full report later, but I'm actually in the midst of tagging a lot of photos on Facebook which is more exciting for me right now. However, I did quickly skim my friendslist and saw yet another one of those posts that irked me, and if I had time I'd fully explain why.

Nonetheless, it brings up my two sentence theory. Any position you have, whether it's on religion on politics, should be summed up in two sentences. For this post, I want to ask a question:

What is your position on same-sex marriage?

I am against same-sex marriage for two reasons. The first is that it's imbalancing the balance of nature; the second is that we're just not ready as a society to accept such a gigantic change in gender roles quite yet.

See? Nice, easy, and simple. Could you enlighten D2 on your position for or against same-sex marriage in two sentences as well?
