Liberalism, choice, and compulsion

Social liberals take it for granted that social conservatives are meddling, tyrannical, and incipiently violent. My current column at Catholic World Report deals with the issue. Basic response: if liberal views simply transcribe obvious human reality, then conservative views are indeed an attempt to interfere that can be expected to bollix things up in all sorts of ways. It’s not clear why anyone should accept the assumption though.
