Researcing tranhumanism in general I am studying humanism. Humansim has an ethics system based on rationality and the right to have your own values. This, and some postings on this list got me thninking about laws and crimes.

On the surface it sounds like a good idea to eliminate the victimless crimes from the law, like drug abuse etc. But what about something like the traffic laws, where there is no wictim at first for driving without a license or in other recless ways. Certainly more people will be killed or maimed. Isn't this a too high price to pay for the added freedom? I havn't made my mind up yet.

Does anybody know any good sources of the abolishment of victimless crimes?
