Hello everyone, I hope you're day has been wonderful. Please share your answer to this question with the rest of us. One of the company lawyers made a statement last week that many thought was interesting. He stated that “The way to reduce crime is to reduce laws.” What do you think about this idea? Do you agree or disagree?

Disagree.  People want to "do it my way" whether if there are more or fewer laws.

I think that you are correct. Most people do things their own way "my way." Meaning "your way." But those actions are normally within the legal frame work that have been prescibed by law.

True, there won't be as many laws broken if there are fewer laws, period.

Does that necessarily equate to better human behavior?  Almost certainly not.

This is really a great subject for a good discussion. One on another site wrote "No law, no crime." What say you?
