If any given act is illegal then the government shouldn't be allowed to do it either.

A better idea would be to encourage people to take an interest in politics and offer more education in schools regarding politics. Too many people form their opinions not because they have thought about them but because somebody else has thought about them for them. If somebody tells you to think something, question their motives. Question your own motives for the opinions that you hold too.
At the end of the day you can moan about your government all you like but you only have yourself to blame because you put them there! Ultimately they work for you and you have the power to regulate them. The only reason that governments can get away with corruption, warmongering and deceit is because people havent realised yet just how much power they have. Your governments know this and its time that you did too.

I don't know why but I think a society like the one you depict is impossible. How else would governments be able to function if they couldn't break the law? I mean if the government wasn't able to rob from us and print their counterfeit money how else do you think they'd be able to function as they do?
Originally posted by Histopherness Of course then the government couldn't have capitol punishment, come to think about it being held against your will is a crime so no prisons. I believe aiming a gun at someone is considered assault so it isn't as though the police could actually force you to go to the prison that would no longer exist anyway. After all it isn't just the government that routinely ignores the law, how else does one explain the abundance of prisons?
