Mike, no one thinks that you're "no damn good". That's not why legislature
exists. Legislature exists due to *conflicting interests*. Self responsibilty
may be fine and good, but where do you see it practiced besides the rare
oddity? It's unrealistic to always be yammering about how stupid and
irresponsible the "masses" are )even poking fun at religion and other common
self-deceptions) and at the same time claiming that everyone is "so damn
good" that we don't need laws to restrain urges or freedom.
Somewhere in the middle of that huge gray murky pond of ideaoly lies a course
of clear conscience.
You are oversimplifying everything again. "Everything is black and white and
I'm always right." as Sister Machine Gun says.
