Now you're getting it. (2)

Michael Medved has recently written on what he calls DIY conservatism, namely,
making the case that the best way to prevent the inexorable growth of government at every level is to take more individual initiative in solving pressing problems.

Instead of complaining about the miserable values promoted by mass media, place yourself and the rest of your family on a TV/movie diet, selecting and scheduling the material you consume with much greater consciousness of the messages it sends.
For decades, believers in individual liberty have been saying essentially the same thing to those control freaks of both the left and the right who want the law to mirror their personal likes and dislikes. Medved has given us a longer-winded, more conservative-P.C. version of "Against (fill in the blank)? Don't do it."
