Yeah but this isn't about not getting caught. There would be no laws (for you) so everything you do (shoplifting, stealing, speeding etc,) would be legal. ie: you wouldn't be caught coz you wouldn't be doing anything wrong (technically)
And you're wrong, people do think about others. Stealing from a big company (it's easy to look at companies as not having human faces) is different from murder, or mugging random people because "you wouldn't get caught".
Most people put their own interests above others, but most people also have morals, and probably view eg. stealing from the poor as wrong. A minorities actions in a riot isn't the basis for human nature.
I personally would try to live life normally/honestly, just without paying unless I want to. eg, I'd pay at the family owned/run newsagents, but I'd walk my trolley straight out of Sainsbury's and share my free "purchases" with whoever wanted/needed them (coz Sainsbury's can afford a little) maybe "rob" a bank.
I would try not to do anything which would damage anyone else personally though...
Anyway, most things aren't helped by going against the law... It has a purpose and it does it well.
If there was no law, most people would live by morals alone, probably a "do as you would have done to" you sort of system. The problem would be the few who don't care (who would probably get banished after time)
Stuff like schooling, health services and police would go down the toilet (due to unstable funding), along with "trust"
