No. See it's not your right. You can delude yourself into thinking that, but it doesn't make it any truer.
It's that simple. You do not
have the right to break the laws which you don't like.
There are laws most of us don't like. Do you really think we like
the fact that we "need" to use a social security number to open a bank
account? (there's a legal way around this, but that's a different matter - you get the point). Do you really think we like
submit to baggage checks and/or x-raying at the airports? Come on.
And by the same token, there are laws most of us are thankful for (even you. Because I'd bet my last cent you don't know the reasons why - or even
the existence of - each and every law, and as a result I'd also bet there are laws in place that protect you every day of the week that you're
unaware of, and that you'd actually be quite happy about having in place)
Nobody is arguing that everyone must like every law that's written - I really do hope you can see that?
But the ones you're arguing about...dude, you broke the law
, you did so in a non life-saving situation, and you want to complain about
it....that's basically what's happening here, isn't it?
You admitted to breaking that law, and you said you did so knowing it wasn't in a life or death situation (which, yes, might actually change things
Deal with the consequences for your actions.
