Drugs used to be illegal, but people still did drugs. Abortions used to be illegal, but people still killed their children. Guns don’t commit crimes, people do. Can you control people? No, you can’t. Can you control guns, drugs, and abortion devices? Yes, you can make them challenging to get for the average person, but people will still find a way to do what they want. You will not be able to fix this world with man-made laws. You can do your best to contain people with legal boundaries, but the depraved nature of man will go beyond that. One of the first acts of murder ever committed was done with a rock, kind of hard to ban those. People will always find ways to kill each other. It really sucks.
This is probably one of the most common sayings in our slippery slope society. Rules are NOT meant to be broken. Rules are meant to be kept! Rules keep us safe. Rules set boundaries. Rules are put in place because we don’t know how to behave.
One thing that we don’t want to do is change the rules just because everyone is doing something a certain way. That’s the difference between ethics and morals. There is a concept of right and wrong, and gray areas just show confusion and ignorance about ethical principals.
