The precautionary principle

Liberals appeal to the precautionary principle when it comes to environmental issues.

Conservatives appeal to the precautionary principle when it comes to social issues.

Libertarians tend not to heed precaution in either arena.

(I am speaking of American politics and use the terms above in that context)
