The truth is, i am a very "law abiding" person. I do not abide them because they are laws, I abide them because I look out for myself - I self govern. I don't want to hit oncoming cars, so I drive on the right side of the road. I do not want to rear end cars, so I observe the posted speed limits. I want harmony with my neighbors, so I do not steal from them or gossip about them. You get the idea....
ALL of us self govern, unless we have a personal "keeper." If the only reason people obeyed laws was fear of punishment, we would need a personal cop each. (Please don't take that as a suggestion!)
It is when we place mere, fallible (and very bribe-able) men in places of power that lawlessness takes hold.
Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
