    What laws, new or old, have taken away your Personal Freedoms? Is it better to have Freedom, or Safety? Can we have both?

    How do you feel about certain laws, do they take away our freedoms in the name of safety. SHOULD WE BE WORRIED? What laws would we be better off without?


    Do you feel we have too many laws, or think that we need more?


    Does more laws equal more government in our personal lives?


    WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE POPULAR LAW OF EMINENT DOMAIN?

    Sounds like the squeezing of civil liberties on the alter of the terror laws and the war on terror.We're under every more stringent survellance with the authorities needing more and more ways to monitor the people ~ in our interests and for our ultimate well being of course.Add this to the risk averse,health and saftey driven,nanny state culture we've become and i despair of the way things are going.
    Our civil liberties were hard won over centuries yet we seem to be throwing them away for protection from a threat thats barely credible.Trading our liberty for a comfy cage because with freedom comes responsibility and most of the sheep out there would sooner trade their freedom n let the government take care of the rest.
    Well i expect theirs thousands of activists over the centuries spinning in their graves !!!!
    I want my freedom back !!!

    Good comment fastbob you have my vote

    How about the Patriot Act? Doesn't that take away for our personal freedom, or privacy?
    What about the law that allows government to take away your property, no matter how long it's been in your family, in the name of progress? These two laws alone have changed the U.S. drastically.

    What did Benjamin Franklin have to say about this subject?

    A person will only be as free as the people in power permit them to be Americans have given away their freedom and they just don't realise it yet. America is fast becoming a police state

    I believe the more laws you make, the less freedom you have. That's just my opinion.


    Eminent domain laws allows the government to purchase your private property with out your approval, when offered a fair market price, whoever determines that, I don't know.


    If the city, county, state, or federal government wants your land they can basically take it, no matter how long your family has owned the property, there's nothing you can do.


    We don't own the mineral rights to our own property.

    If that's how you feel, then follow that path.. your reactions and how you feel are the best way to learn about yourself, and tap in to the truth about life. :]

    Im not sure what anyone said on this subject, but there is 2 different kinds of law.. common law, and UCC (universal commercial code) which ever nation on the planet part of the UN has versions of. That is how they do business.. Law is business unless it's common law, and that is built in to every spiritually evolved being that is a part of the conscious whole. :]

    My opinion is irrelevant since opinions are overrated. Things just 'are', and when im upset about something; that reaction tells me that im being affected by things that don't really matter.


    The difference is common law is built in law; don't kill, cause harm or steal the property of another.
    UCC is universal commercial code which is the law of business, also called 'statutary law' most times. Statutary law is made of straw.. it is there because someone wanted it to be there.. the ones who create these kinds of laws have the time to do it. while everyone else is busy doing the real labor.

    Great answer, unfortunately most people have no idea about UCC or the difference between lawful and legal.

    Inform us anonymous tell us the difference and laws you like or dislike.

    National Security Act robs me every day and it is not a law. You can't fight an act in the Supreme Court. So can it be made a crime please. Two thirds of California voters, voted that it is a crime to prohibit a person from removing things from a city or county dump in order to recycle or reuse such items. It was a ballot issue. The state legislatures decided to go around the law and not enforce the law in this matter and now prohibits public access to dumps for this purpose. As a result the electrical repair industry is no longer supported. I use to fix TVs, Lights and appliances that are now no longer profitable to fix and the parts, though available new are not available as salvaged parts for less than wholesale.

    depends on how you define youre freedom

    leeroy

    You can include Liberties as well if you'd like.

    smart move, when is your essay due?
    leeroy

    No essay, history was just one of my favorite subjects, and laws have an impact on our daily lives. I'm finished with school, at least for now, unless I decide to go for my masters.

    freedom you haven't any,, you do have some rights.but your gov, is slowly taking them away..

    Income Tax Laws have taken away my freedom pursuit of hapiness. They are unconstitutional and choke the life out of my income. We were suppossed to support this country with luxury taxes and import dutys.

    leeroy

    In the U.S., they're are only income tax codes, no law says you have to pay income tax, but the tax codes inhibit our ability to get ahead so to speak

    ARE THEY REALLY KEEPING PEOPLE SAFE WHOS PROTECTING OUR CHILDREN NOT CPS THATS FOR SURE THEY NEED TO LET LIE DETECTERS MAKE DESISIONS ABOUT WEATHER SOMEONE IS ABUSING A CHILD OR NOT SO THEY STOP THE LIES ABOUT WHOSEVER CHILDREN THEY WANT TO SELL THEY NEVER TAKE THE ONES BORN ON DRUGS GIVE THEM BACK TO THE MOTHERS TOO UN HEALTHY
