Naked Intuition

As an example of a naked conclusion in my political philosophy that stands mostly contrary to some established concepts in my political philosophy, I accept as reasonable that Muslims, Judaists, and Vegetarians who happen to be in prison should receive, on request, Halal, Kosher, or Vegetarian food provided the difficulties/costs of doing so are not excessive. As of present, I can't justify this, and I'm not sure what other dietary preferences should be accomodated nor am I comfortable generally thinking that the state should become engaged with cultural communities in that kind of way (I am comfortable with some engagement; I do support marriage as a legal institution). This is one of the topics on the back burner for consideration.

I suspect we all have such naked intuitions/conclusions in our political philosophies.
