Laws That Slap Us In The Face

While I’m not for a completely lawless society, I do believe that there should be minimal laws and certainly none that allow for us to commit crimes against ourselves.

Think about that: committing a “crime” against yourself.

Scratching your head? Yeah, so am I. Which is why I’ve previously written about laws and how messed up they are.

What I did not mention previously is the slap in the face that we all get when laws in our area are different, specifically more strict, than laws elsewhere. The simple fact that something is legal in one area but illegal in another should invalidate any claims in support of keeping it illegal.

I believe that laws should regress to wherever they are least strict. This would likely eliminate many of the bullshit laws & start to give back our freedoms that have been gradually taken away under the guise of doing right by the public. It’s a slap in the face that “free” humans cannot gamble online in Ohio, but the same “free” Americans in other states can. (Not to mention it’s a slap in the face that we cannot gamble freely in Ohio, only as the State allows re: casinos, state-run lottery, etc. Try running your own lottery in Ohio and see how quickly you get put in a cage.)

It’s a slap in the face that Ohioans can’t smoke pot because it’s so “dangerous” yet there are two dozen states (not to mention other countries) that disagree?! It’s a slap in the face that cannabis is illegal in some places but legal in others. Imagine someone’s mother, father, son or daughter is literally locked in a steel cage in one area and yet that same person would walk freely in another. This is pure oppression (and insanity!)

Think about laws from the perspective of where else they exist and then ask yourself, is this fair? Is it fair that the system arbitrarily determines where freedoms start and end? Shouldn’t we all be equally free?
