The main point is merely

The main point is merely this: At almost no time in recorded history has there existed sizeable numbers of people without laws of one kind or another. On a one-to-one basis, people seldom act in a fashion where the laws are mentioned or called upon. Common sense applies. However, the laws are always there. Systems for judgment and enforcement remain. Human beings chafe at laws that restrain us, but demand them when we are disadvantaged or harmed. Is it any wonder there exist so many insane regulations and laws since laws are the result of almost nothing but conflicting self-interests?
