'Law sewers'

'Law sewers'

I believe that people should be free to choose what kind of society they live in. That means that those who wish to live under a powerful government with "laws" controlling or regulating every aspect of their lives should be allowed to do so. Of course, that also means that those of us who want no form of external government at all should be free to pursue our path as well.

There are no longer any places that are not "legal cesspools". Some localities are worse than others, and some LEOs are worse about enforcing all the "applicable edicts" than others, but no place is any longer immune from the overbearing statism that infects America in these early years of the 21st century.

Just about every place is now drowning under a tsunami of "laws", regulations, licensing requirements, permits, ....and the list goes on. Some people obviously like that kind of an environment.

Different strokes for different folks. I have seen houses that were dirtier than a hog pen, too, where the occupants seemed perfectly content. However, it is wrong to make others live in your filth by polluting their homes as well as your own.

This means that in order to be free of such, freedom-lovers may have to carve a bit of freedom from the grasp of the tyrannies of the world, unless the tyrants, and those who are content to live under tyrants, can be convinced of our resolve to live unmolested.

"Law pollution" is a real problem. If people want a huge load of "laws" controlling every aspect of their lives, there are a couple of peaceful solutions that can be reached. Let them congregate in a few big cities like New York City, Chicago, or Los Angeles. Then let them regulate each other to death if that is what they want. Or, let them just leave the rest of us alone while we live among one another; overlapping societies in the same space.

What this comes down to is "keep your filthy government off my life".
