I think you might be getting a little carried away there

Originally I would have agreed with you, but what I have seen over that last few years in manipulation of public opinion has changed my mind. If you have arrived at a point where laws are no longer perceived as effective you are creating both a decline of human decency and a power vacuum.

You may recall that we've had similar conditions just before WW I and WW II, but this time we have bombs that can destroy the whole planet and enough idiots who would find that acceptable collateral damage.
