“Americans are shifting left on almost every social issue you can think of,” declares Matthew Yglesias at Vox. Inter alia:
Americans are more likely to say that gay sex is morally acceptable, that divorce is acceptable, that extramarital affairs are acceptable, that physician-assisted suicide is acceptable, and even that cloning animals or human beings is acceptable.
They’re also more “permissive” toward “polygamy” and non-assisted “suicide.”
Fair enough. But just for the record: Is it now the case that the “left” — Yglesias’s word, not mine — believes that “married men and women having an affair,” polygamy, and suicide are all “morally acceptable”?
