Skip to comments.The Illusion of Neutrality
Posted on 05/15/2015 12:46:32 PM PDT by NRx
A principle case formulated by Anthony Esolen of the Witherspoon Institute is called the 'Nude Beach Principle'. The principle works by describing a town in which there is a beach, and a small minority of beach-goers who wish to be naked. Suppose the town's civic authorities take up the matter, and are deciding on which course of action to pursue. The nudists may claim that they wish to stake out a totally neutral position, the tolerant, reasonable, pragmatic center. Nobody will be forced to strip bare whilst at the beach, but it is an option for those who wish to do so.
This of course seems ludicrous. If the beach features even one naked person, it then become unpalatable to be frequented by any normal person, especially those who might want to bring their children to play in the sand and surf. By taking a so-called 'neutral' ground, you've actually just managed to spoil it for one party to the benefit of the other.
The principle can be used to combat a prevalent route of argument among Liberals known as the 'Illusion of Neutrality'.

The mechanism of this fake neutrality is legal incorporation. By treating people as corporations (which cannot be legally defended or proven, so it is allowed to be assumed) humanity itself - with its rights - is denied and replaced by a paper creation wholly dependent upon government-granted privilege.
Both right and left are guilty of protecting this mechanism. The left for its social control, the right for its economic indemnification.
Nevertheless, no matter what the reason, it is death to America - and not by chance, but by specific definition. For how can a country based on human rights, and human freedom, survive when it no longer acknowledges humans?
Nude beaches... The nudists will keep anyone away.
However. The French beaches of St. Maarten??? Topless will get everyone there.
