Daily Kos: The Ministry of Rudy

Daily Kos: The Ministry of Rudy:

"'Freedom is not a concept in which people can do anything they want, be
anything they can be. Freedom is about authority. Freedom is about the
willingness of every single human being to cede to lawful authority a great deal
of discretion about what you do.' "

As much as it pains me to say this, I agree with Rudy on this one. Living under an absence of laws would be living under the rule of those who were most willing and able to enforce their will on others. Laws not only limit what we can do, it limits what others can do to us. The law against stealing, means on person cannot steal, but really it is protecting the right of the person to not have things stolen.
