"Law people"

in liberty •  last year

Don't be "law people". I'm not even talking about lawyers, cops, judges and such- I am talking about normal, every day people who really have nothing to do with "laws", but who choose to worry about them anyway.

Those are the people who hate something and think it's wrong because it's illegal. The ones who oppose Cannabis but not aspirin, due to the different ways the "law" treats the substances.

"Law people" ask "Is that legal?" before doing something. Or, say "But that's illegal!" when someone else starts to do something.

"Law people" disgust me.

I know, right? Every time I get on the roof of a tall building and I'm about to jump off, people say, "Don't jump!" When I tell them that it's okay and that I'm just going to fly around for a bit, they say I can't fly and that it's against the law of gravity.

Stupid law people.

I guess I'm OK then...whether or not something's legal never enters my decision making process. Is it right? Yes...is it legal? Hell no!

I always ask them to show me where I signed this 'law'

So @dullhawk prepare to be disgusted!
I live in a country that has laws. For the most part, most of us obey those laws.
It is a peaceful, happy country, mostly.

We are friendly towards outsiders, supportive of our neighbors and friends.

We can do that because we feel secure and safe in the environment in which we live.

There is a desire, amongst most of the people here, to 'do the right thing', by each other, the country and our environment.

We are far from perfect. But that's ok too.

There are some however who feel that the law does not apply to them. They are above or beyond the law. They did not make the law so it is not binding on them.

They do not disgust me.

They can feel the way they do and express their ideals the way they do because the law allows them to, because the nature of the people who have to listen to them is supportive and kind and tolerant.

The mere fact that they feel free to openly express their discontent is a validation of the very system they are so against.

I disgust you because I think about the laws of my country and how they affect me and the others who dwell here with me. Is it the fact that I am awake and aware and willing to engage in debate about these laws to ensure they are as fair for everyone as possible. Or is it the fact that I care that disgusts you so much?

Or is it that you want to smoke cannabis and you are not allowed to because of the harm that it does?

Before you tell me it does no harm to anyone, let me tell you that I have seen the harm that it does, and spent many years picking up the pieces of lives destroyed by it.

So, @dullhawk there is your opening - what is it about me and people like me that disgusts you so much?
