Society cannot function without laws. We need laws and the enforcement of them to ensure safety, structure, and well being. Laws protect our way of life and restrict harmful behavior. A proper legislative system will promote or reward good and punish evil. At least that’s the theory.
But what happens when those same laws inhibit people from doing right? I’m not referring to some Robin-Hood-meets-Prince-John good outlaw vs. evil dictator. I’m referring to the type of inhibition that comes from a law that started with good reason but, because of precedence, now threatens to keep children hungry.
