What I do not like in this picture is that it influences people to make two wrong assumptions: 1. to think that law is always (or most of time) protecting immoral things and
2. that things that are illegal now might become legal later (independent of morality).
There are another points that IMHO shall be clearly noted:
1. At some point even the most terrible things could be accepted by public as morally normal and fixed in the law.
2. Public morale changes, law follows.
well that utopia is unrealistic cause of human nature. Anyways peace seeking individuals does not necessarily mean patsies. you can wrestle with bad guys. take joy in the art of disarming them. and anarchism is pure decentralization. its like bitcoin and the blockchain in order to defeat it you need control of at least half or more of the network.
lots of issues with anarchism, lots of politics. people are different.
Well, public morale is clearly impacting selection of those who has the power. Public morale is a basis that allows for selection of powerful people. If it is acceptable for majority to have slaves than this majority will elect representatives that will make slavery legally regulated and convenient.
@klomb the picture isn't actually suggesting any of that. It simply says that law and morality are related only tangentially, and you shouldn't blindly rely on the current laws for moral guidance.
