Is there any reason why it's considered "right" to have laws or structure? watch

    Are people who are obsessed with order anal, or otherwise coddled and consequently need protection?

    A grown adult should live his own life, and not be told what he can do with his life. If this means things that are "wrong", so be it.

    Is a grown man truly intelligent if he abides by arbitrarily imposed "limits"?

    You'd probably be dead if there were no laws or structure, you'd probably have no education...Oh wait I don't think you do now?

    Grown people should be free to negotiate at will, and live to maximum.

    Most "laws" we live by in the UK are silly. Very few actually seek to smooth and regulate basic human interaction, which is why we have laws in the first place.

    A grown man is told by Cameron and co. not to take drugs, but who is Cameron to say this? He is no God, no better informed to tell grown men what to do with their lives. A better mode of government should be user fee-based. We should be free to choose our own legal protection and legal representation.

    Humans have shown themselves incapable of living in large scale societies without them, and if you want your modern conveniences like tv and internet and running water, large scale society is a good thing.

    That's not to say our laws are perfect, of course - they go too far in some places and fall short in others.

    I hate the idea that somebody thinks they are better than us and that they can govern us or somehow judge for us what we can and can't do with our bodies; drug prohibition is a horrific infringement on personal liberty. The idea that somebody can forcefully enter your home because you own drugs is ridiculous.

    But yeah I think law and structure is weird, though some form of government seems necessary. Too bad we've gone for what we've got though really... will take a long time to undo the evils of our western welfare capitalism.

    Well we need laws and structure because without it, the world would be full of anarchy and chaos. It would suck. THere would be no internet, no police, no order, just people doing whatever they wanted.

    That means no public education, no government control, no freedom. You would actually lose the very thing you're arguing to gain here.
