While were at it lets bring back Hitler and the gestapo (secret police) and go under nazi rule! Yay! [Saracasm end] While i do think that there are cases that a eye for a eye should be implemented, there are other times when it shouldent. Strangly enough we were talking about this in a SOSE class just the other day (not the acid thing, eye for a eye). Our case was one of the people resonsible for lighting a fire during ash saturday. (He dilibretly wanted this fire to kill and distroy), we decided that we should through him into the society that he distroyed and turn a blind eye when he is topped.

NiteStryker subscribes to the belief that if it is illegal it is wrong,and if it is legal it is right. Personally, the only person I trust to decide what is right and wrong is myself. No government will ever dictate my morality.

Agreed. Which is why I think in courts, the jury is not only there to determine guilt, but whether it would be just to impose the guilty sentence.

Afterburner;4814124NiteStryker subscribes to the belief that if it is illegal it is wrong,and if it is legal it is right. [/QUOTE] Yea, pretty much. Murder is illegal, and I happen to think that is wrong. Certain drugs are illegal, and I think their use is wrong. Theft is wrong, and I think its wrong. Vandalism is illegal, I also think its wrong. Fraud, same deal, etc.

I actually pretty much agree with the laws the way they are. I would make some dog breeds illegal but other than that my views mirror the laws pretty well.

Ok, what do you think is illegal that follows your morality?

Also for those of you who have a religious mentality, most laws are loosely around the 10 commandments. So you shouldnt have many problems with em.

NiteStryker;4814297 Ok, what do you think is illegal that follows your morality?

A person should be able to do with their bodies as they will, which means there should be no such thing as illegal drugs. I think they need to be regulated, of course, because children shouldn't be able to get their hands on the stuff, but if you are legally an adult (18) then you should be able to do anything you want to yourself.

Also, law needs to be about wisdom as much as the word of the law. Sometimes the word of the law creates a situation, such as an impoverished father stealing food for a starving child, that really isn't very immoral at all. I recall hearing a story awhile ago about how a father bought lemonade for his son, but didn't realize it was hard lemonade. Someone saw the kid drinking it, and called in the police. The kid was removed to an hospital, given a clean bill of health, and then further removed to protective custody for several days while paperwork was filled out. The father was eventually exonerated and the family was reunited and the judge apparently told the man "I didn't want to do this but the law is the law."

The whole thing could have been reso0lved by police applying wisdom and telling the father "Did you know that is hard lemonade?" And the father realizing his mistake, no harm done. Morality is not cut and dry, like the law makes it seem. A kid stealing a candy bar needs guidance, not punishment. A man stealing food for his family needs help, not punishment. And above all, people need to apply wisdom and logic to law and punishment.

Hmm. It should still be illegal to sell, or give away drugs, and especially to minors, but once you get them then they should be yours to do with as you want.

[/QUOTE] Why cant a kid have it? Whats wrong with a kid wanting to get some heroin?

The reason that crap is illegal is because under the influences of said illegal drugs, you can harm other people.

If you want to slice your wrists up and down all day, I say have fun and videotape it for me to watch later when I get home from work. But the second you do something that can harm somebody else, thats the line.

He didnt know it was hard lemonaide? What a stupid father. They dont keep that stuff next to the pepsi bottles, its in the alchocol section. The guy wasnt fit to be a parent then if he couldnt figure that sh*t out. He didnt think it was wierd to get asked for an ID for simple lemonaide?

[QUOTE=Afterburner;4814312] A kid stealing a candy bar needs guidance, not punishment.

And if this is second, third, or 25th time, he still needs guidence?

No. Generally people are taught very quick stealing is wrong. If you get off once you will do it again until something bad enough happens to you to deter you from it in the future.

I never stole anything in my life. Ever. Why? Because I knew from day 1 that it was wrong, and the repercussions would be my dad whippin my ass. Nomatter how bad I have wanted some things in life, I have never stolen anything. [QUOTE=Afterburner;4814312] A man stealing food for his family needs help, not punishment.

Agreed, but then he should try to get help before he resorts to stealing, wouldnt you agree?
