He felt that America, with it's Puritan origins and traditions forced a long out dated moral code on a lot of Americans through the years. The gist of this moral code is, "If it's fun, it's a sin." Now, if these conservatives want to deny themselves fun, go right ahead. More power to ya. But they see other people having fun and they have certain responses. Envy. Fear. And bewilderment. They have these morals so ingrained that they don't under stand these other peoples love of fun. They fear it. They fear fun will destroy their society as they see it. They fear it will corrupt their youth and take them away from their traditions and heritage. They envy the fun, and I think that scares them the most.
So they lash out to destroy they fun. To remove the temptation. To try to force everyone into their moral code.
You know something? I think I'm going to have to start a "show a conservative a good time" group. Take some rightwinger out for something fingie and wild. Let them see that when they go home, they had a fun carefree time, and when they got home, the world had not ended because they enjoyed themselves.
The trick is, how do you get the conservatives to take part?
