So people can't choose to live with who they wish? We're one of the biggest police states in the world and don't believe in freedom as our government treats its people like trash. Caltrek, it is time to stop calling ourselves the land of the free.
Even Britain is more free.
This is a story about zoning. So how do you connect that to living with who they choose to live with?
If you are talking about discrimination, then that cuts both ways. Depriving a black person of the right to live in a certain neighborhood certainly deprives that person of the right to live with who he wants to live with. Incidentally, it also often creates the additional burden of a long commute to work. There are some real horror stories about how far minorities have to commute to work. Definitely an infringement on their economic freedom.
As to zoning, I can actually be a bit of an anarchist on that point. Sure, separating a noisy smoke noisy belching factory from a multi-family residential area makes a certain amount of sense. Still, zoning commissions often go hog wild when they let loose their zoning maps. Homeowners Associations can be even worse. They will even tell you what color of paint you can use to paint your house.
You don't like their supervision - well then, you don't have to live in their neighborhood. Never mind that the majority of the people in that neighborhood actually agree with you. As you might be able to tell, I have actually had some experience in that area.
On it being more free in England. If you think our government secrets acts are strict...
Of course, I am no expert on government secrets acts.
