    And should they be for the good or the detriment of ALL the people if they are Federal laws................:eusa_think:


    And should they benefit or harm one sector or group over another being the "law of the land".............:eusa_think: :eusa_whistle:

    I'll answer your first question with another question (annoying but it might make my point) - cui bono? Who benefits?

    As to your second question, a law which does harm is a bad law. A law which benefits one grouping over another is also a bad law. So I suppose my answer to your second question is, no it should do neither. But then I look back at my rather cynical response to your first question and I realise my answer, to your second question, is hopelessly idealistic.

    Sometimes vague works. I recall a saying by an educator, an Italian I think, can't think of his name, who said words to the equivalent of, "I sell yeast, not bread."

    Discrimination isn't prima facie unlawul, it's the underlying assumptions about the act(s) of discrimination and also their motivating factors that need to be examined.

    Laws are made to protect the weak and force their agenda on those who don't need them.

    No offense Nibor but were you born yesterday? Without rules society would quickly deteriorate into the situation you see today in Iraq - at least for a while till sanctions returned. Without both internal and external restraints many men see no reason to live by the rules. But surely you have neighbors and friends imagine no law for them?
