            No, it's not called "slavery". Do you not know what "slavery" is? Should I post a link for you?

            But no one is forcing anyone to do business. You don't have to open up a shop if you don't want. But yes, once you decide you want to do business in the public square you have to abide by the public rules. It's called "The Constitution".

            We abolished that quite a while ago. But the good news is that nobody has to bake the cake any more. So that one is a sort of dead issue.
            No it isn't. The issue goes before the Supreme Court in the next term.

            But the points in the article are not. It explains why classical liberals have been forced to care about the intolerance of the alphabet people.
            Again, if you can't be bothered to articulate these points yourself and post them yourself, then I see no reason to discuss them with you.

              In a free country, everybody is equal, and no one has the right to treat anybody as less-than-equal just because they're different.

              Not being allowed to discriminate against others is slavery?

              This manufactured white Christian victimhood shtick is hilarious.
              Don't even bother. You can't win.

                How many minds have you changed on the subject so far with your words? Or with other people's words, as the case may be?

                  I don't think you know what that word actually means. For starters, I must disagree with the very opinion I posted. I don't. I completely agree.

                  The whole point of trolling is to post an opinion contrary to your own for the sole purpose of getting a reaction. Now, if I am on a "progressive" site that specifically states that it is, and post an opinion piece from a classical liberal perspective, especially if I agree with it, that could be called trolling. But this is a politically neutral site. Both sides (and any others) are welcome here. It means that a thread started by a person who agrees with the position of the thread, even if some are angered by it, is not trolling. However, post within it can be trolling.

                  Frankly, I think the worst kind of trolling is calling a person a troll when there is no evidence to support the claim. It takes more than simply disagreeing with you to make someone a troll, unless the site exists specifically to present the viewpoint with which you agree.

                      You insinuated it. Which BTW, is something you're not really supposed to do here... If you think someone is trolling, then please report... and ignore.

                      Because of something that happened to me once, I decided to do a deep dive on getting a solid understanding of what is and what isn't trolling. Fact is, rarely does trolling really take place on a site that allows comments from both sides. Rather, it is really more obvious when it happens. REAL trolling is akin to a guy sticking his head in a gay bar and yelling, "I HATE FAGS". Doing it in a "regular" bar is just being obnoxious.

                      I don't think so. Did I miss it? Did someone suggest that I sounded like a troll? I dunno. Someone mentioned trolling and I thought I'd give my two cents worth on it. Calling someone a troll, is the new equivalent of calling someone a "racist".

                      It's sort of lost any meaning. Even wiki points out that the definition depends on who you talk to.

                        Why should I care about something that is none of my fooking business?

                          Because this thread and the opinion piece it links are trying to force you to care.

                            Because the "totalitarian Left" held you down and made you care.
