British society is ridden with rules and regulations, its constantly changing the way we live to make our environment "safer". The law is being used as a tool by the government to govern the way we live and not what it was meant for: protecting society from criminals, now it is being used to protect society from itself. If you drive a car then you are being watched by the state all the time incase you go over the speed limit which I'm told is extremely dangerous for health, if your caught you only have so many chances before you lose your license and get a ban. On the television you will see a road tax advert which basically tells you if you don't pay road tax you will crash and kill babies - the advert has a crashed car with an empty pram next to it and it happened not because of poor driving but because the owner didn't pay his road tax, therefore automatically not having insurance and MOT. The police is being used by officials either of the EU or the British parliament to carry out this war on the motorist thus diverting their reasorces to catching criminals. The end justifies the means and thats to make driving safe while other aspects of criminal law are being neglected to such a point that people are disillusioned with the system. We are told that all drugs will threaten your life, they are bad for you and if you use them you will turn into a raging drug addict who will do anything to get some drugs. You are told not to use them as its against the law and if your caught you will have to deal with the harsh consequences, thats to say you will go to jail and or pay a fine. Again the end justifies the means, people will not use drugs therefore society will be better in the long run but what the government has failed to notice is people still use drugs and by making it illegal; drug barons will keep on getting richer without paying tax into the society they are destroying. They are destroying the society because its illegal as its illegal status makes it expensive because its hard to get - drug addicts cannot then fund their problem driving them to crime. The question I'm trying to illustrate is if you believe that rules and regulations as well as laws aimed at protecting society are necessary. Do you not believe that they are self defeating? Do we need a state to decide what is good for us? Do we need to be told what to do by the state? If the regulations were taken away do you believe that society will worsen or actually become better? Also, wouldn't society not be better off without this government regulatory bullshit?
