Let's start with hypothetical gun control laws. Criminals don't own registered weapons (for the most part). They own stolen ones. The only people
who could be disarmed by the government are people who aren't criminals, with registered weapons. A gun disarmament would be very unwise.
This isn't a gun control thread.
Let's move on to another law. What about drugs. Since drugs have been outlawed by our overlords, a whole underground market emerged in defiance to
it. A significant percentage of motives of murders are drug related. If the drug market was not underground, there would be none of this. The reasons
are complicated, but obvious.
I just saw a thread titled something along the lines of, "checkpoints and license checks..." The people who come up with these ideas are either not
very forward thinking people or are very forward thinking and they desire the inevitable negative consequences of their actions. Because license
checks are just going to create a whole new set of crimes. People want to be free. We don't care about laws if it is in the way of our desires. So
what's the point in laws anyway? They aren't stopping human nature. They only create the appearance that they are solving problems. I'll tell you
what will happen if license checks and road blocks start popping up. Identity theft will increase significantly. Identity theft experts will emerge
and stealing someone's identity will be a phone call away. It will be easier because the demand will be higher. Then, your identity which originally
was acquired to circumvent police checkpoints will be used for other things. A long list of problems that you don't want. Even a long list of
problems that won't effect you, like the underage purchasing of alcohol, for example. Not that I'm against that.
It is self defeating to the government. Every law they make requires other laws to be made in reaction to the problems caused by the first.
Laws create all kinds of problems across a wide range of areas including political, social, economic, psychological, and more. The madness can't go
on forever. Something will give.
