Well, explain it to me then.
Let's say there's a law on the books stating it is punishable by fine if I am caught using my cellphone while driving. What's preventing me from
using my cellphone while driving? Does the existence of said law make it physically impossible for me to lift my phone to my ear? Physically
impossible for me to drive around for hours and hours gabbing away about nothing at all?
Homer had his license taken away for driving drunk yet was about to drive off to save his family from a bunch of rednecks. Lisa says "Dad, you can't
drive. They took your license." Homer responds, "I have to try!" Homer turns the key. The cars engine starts up. The Simpsons drive away.
Explain to me how any law prevents any crime? Decent people will behave decently. Indecent people will behave indecently regardless of how many laws
are in place. You can't legislate decency.
The only things laws accomplish are to oppress the decent and provide a source of revenue and power for the state.
