One of the things I've noticed is that social conservatives and traditional values are bashed for being "religiously based" and thus non-scientific at best and ignorant superstitions at worst. When in actuality traditional values have been proven time and again to be the most beneficial way for an individual to live. The left advocates unfettered hedonism. We know it doesn't work. What we need to do is make the reality based case that hedonism doesn't work and that "traditional"/christian/normal values do.
