    Isn't part of being an adult recognising that there are no limits in life? Why do adults seek to respect "laws" or other such inanity?

    More to the point, do we not champion freedom enough?

    Which laws are you talking about?

    What would be the good in allowing people to have no limits? The law is there as a sort of check - while it is acknowledged that people have certain rights and freedoms, it is also acknowledged that people have certain responsibilities too - it is impossible to give everyone the right to do whatever they want without it being damaging to other people. If people had no limits there is a chance that some would take advantage of that fact and do things that would benefit themselves but disadvantage other people. It's one of the limitations of democracy and human rights - we are never really 'free' in that respect (not that that's a bad thing of course).

    How is that freedom? freedom essentially is doing what you want.

    regulation is illogical. if the basic state of humans is that everybody is free, then why have regulations?
