Let me first say that I didn't want to get involved in this.That (social norms - whatever they may be) is the sticking point for most 'traditional' and/or 'religious' conservatives and why they tend to lump vices and crimes in certain instances whether it is promoting laws against certain behavior or just wrinkling their noses. Those type of laws regarding non-right violating behavior leads to the slippery slope doing away with freedoms. The very first 'smoking designated area' did that and led to the mass demonization and further regulations and restrictions.
As I've said before, free minds and markets may 'offend one's sensibilities' but it's not going to harm you or violate your rights. And that's the trade off vs. a police state which mandates or prohibits behavior according to someone's or some group's subjective idea of what is the 'social norm'.
But yet, here I go...
Consider the following situation.
A poor neighborhood has many liquor stores, peep shows, and other "seedy" establishments.
Not only people of that neighborhood, but those of other more well-to-do neighborhoods frequent them.
Such neighborhoods may attract prostitutes and drug dealers.
People in that neighborhood raising children don't want those establishments there.
They consider that such an environment is not good for their children walking to and from school.
What are they to do?
It's things like this that keep me in state of uncertainty about what I believe.
I'm hoping someone can explain to me the "right" way of handling such situations.
