Legislating A Prison

I can’t believe they passed the noise bylaw in Calgary. Legislating annoyances is ridiculous. All we’re doing is becoming a culture of legislating everything. Pretty soon you’ll have specific laws on how many hours your kids can play in their yard. No one talks to their neighbours any more. Maybe ensure that drivers maintain the speed limit and don’t drive recklessly on Deerfoot prior to wasting all of our tax money on these garbage regulations. I talked to my neighbours about my bike and everything’s fine. I’m personally sick of having everything we do put into laws that conform us all into the same person. There will always be obnoxious people in life and we can’t legislate them all away.

One of my FB friends said it best “You can’t legislate ignorance” (Quoting Jessi Ventura) and yet governments continuously attempt to do so under the guise of “the greater good”. The reality is they do it to have an excuse to criminalize …every single person they can, excluding themselves of course, so as to facilitate the theft of our freedoms and our wallets. As the rock music group System of a Down stated in one of their great songs on the Toxicity album “Their trying to build a prison system for you and me to live in!” As Benjamin Franklin once said “Those who choose safety over liberty, deserve neither safety nor liberty!”
