Too stupid to govern

Can we survive governance that has no rational basis?

“The right to privacy that forms the basis of Roe is the same right to privacy that protects…the right to marry the person you love…”

Vice President Kamala Harris

[Marriage:] the state of being united as spouses in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law

Merriam-Webster

Marriage, as a state recognized by law, is an inherently public institution.

Who knew that the right to privacy protects the right to participate in a public institution?

  1. Marriage is actually three (at least) distinct things under one umbrella:
    1) Marriage is a *social* institution going back before written history, fairly similar across all human cultures in (at least from a distance. Some norms and practices vary).
    2) Marriage is, in Abrahamic religions, a religious sacrament of some degree.
    3) Based on *both* one and two, marriage is the registration of that institution or sacrement with the secular authority to standardized things like inheritance, and later on taxation etc.

    You will note that *all three* of those are public facing. A private marriage isn’s a marriage, it’s just a personal commitment…Which is a fine and essential thing, but it works better when you publicly commit.

    Harris is an idiot.

    If there was actually *any* privacy protected by Roe, it FIRST would have been medical privacy, and would have *significantly* limited the sort of medical data that the state *DEMANDS* that we provide it, and it would have made things like the FDA unconstitutional. After all, if The State not only can’t get in the room with a woman and her doctor concerning a surgical procedure like abortion, how can they stop a doctor from prescribing marijuana, or using psilocybin mushrooms as part of psychotherapy.
