A nice, abstract topic, with a couple of questions to kick start it below. As always, please keep the conversation (and any discussion therein) on the topic. That means don't attack each other personally. I know it's silly that I should have to remind you all of this, but, hey, it never hurts to have the reminder. Are people generally good, or evil? Are people generally selfless, or selfish? Are people generally competent and self-sufficient, or do they need to be saved from themselves? Judging from the above questions, which is more important to you: Freedom, or Equality?
