That's the crux of it. If there's a law that we don't agree with, then should we obey it (because society makes laws and we live in it), or should we all live out our personal interpretation of laws/only follow laws that we think are acceptable.
This is where I hoped we'd get to.
There's got to be sense in questioning laws and their validity. There are probably loads of laws that a majority would agree are wrong in some way. But should we try and change them through the existing mechanism (democracy), or should we opt out of that and each live our own modified anarchy (term used loosely. Dropping litter unlikely to rock foundations of civilisation)?
And if we do opt for personal "anarchy", then do we have any cause for complaint if we get nicked and have to pay the penalty?
...there's plenty more c**** in the cup.
