Your Values

I have been speaking to Red Tulips about what values are important for me in society. I came up with this basic list of values:

  • Secular law.
  • Freedom of expression.
  • Freedom of religion.
    • *Any* religion - because religion is a personal matter, not state business.
    • Religious practices that breach secular law will be deemed illegal.
    • A state can have an official religion if it likes, so long as everyone has freedom of religion.
  • A representative and accountable government.
  • A strong chocolate industry. ;-)
  • Standing behind these values and not subscribing to cultural and/or moral relativism.

If you could create any society, what would its values?
