Conservatives hate red tape unless their opponents need it

Aug 9, 2019Update

Conservatives who hate government interference and believe that an individual should be in charge of their own actions backflip on this view the minute it comes to different opinions to theirs.

We’ve seen this in issues with a worker’s inability to take their employer to court over serious accidents at work while millionaires can sue for hurt feelings from defamation. In fact, conservatives are pushing workers into individual contracts and moving them away from collective bargaining for the sake of freedom but don’t believe in the freedom of voluntary euthanasia.

It’s not right to ask for more freedom with deregulation saying that this will increase available jobs but then turn around and say it will cost jobs when the less powerful ask for regulations on important and progressive issues.
