Laws
    #3208789 - 10/03/04 02:22 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

You delight in setting down laws, yet you delight more in breaking them

Like children playing by the ocean who build sand-towers with constancy and then destroy them with laughter.

But while you build your sand-towers the ocean brings more sand to the shore.

But what of those to whom life is not an ocean and man made laws are not sand towers?

But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness?

What of the cripple who hates dancers?

what of the ox who loves his yoke and deems the elk and deer of the forest stray and vagrant things?

What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless?


What shall i say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the sun?

They see only their shadows, and their shadows are their laws.

But you, you who travel with the wind, what weather-vane shall direct your course?

People of orphalese, you can muffle the drum, and you can loosen the strings of the lyre, but who shall command the skylark not to sing?

-Kahlil Gibran, the prophet

I think this is the perfect explanation of the true nature of laws. A law is nothing more than one person or one group of people making a futile attempt to shape the world in their own image. It is one groups attempt to say "here, this is what man should be! this is how people should live, This is what is right and wrong!" (looking at your shadow and calling it law)

and before too long, these people are washed away in the ocean of history, their sacred laws becoming nothing more than a distant memory, as their ideas and their ways of living are replaced by those who can still shed their skin, the dancers and the wild ones.

Their is no divinity in law. When law does not match your own morality, your sense of right, or when it strives to restrict your pursuit of knowledge and joy...

well, simply put

FUCK THE LAW

but watch out for the po-po

(they have guns!)

:tongue:

consequences dictate our course of action, it doesnt matter whats right, its only wrong if you get caught. -M.J. Keenan

you cannot trust in law, unless you can trust in people, and if u can trust in people, then you dont need law. -J.Mumma

all laws are subjective and tangible only in concept.
a law on paper isnt a law at all.
its a memo.
a law doesnt need to be written.
it is.
-J.Mumma

I like this J.Mumma dude! :thumbup:

Reminds me of a quote some else here posted about criminals being created by laws which are created. With out laws created that can be easily broken, there would be no criminals.
