Stupid freaking law.

Quote:
.....Men in general are so constituted that there is nothing they will endure with so little patience as that views which they believe to be true should be counted crimes against the laws.... Under such circumstances they do not think it disgraceful, but most honorable, to hold the laws in abhorrence, and to refrain from no action against the government.... Laws which can be broken without any wrong to one's neighbor are counted but a laughing stock; and so far from such laws restraining the appetites and lusts of mankind, they rather strengthen them. Nitimur in vetitum semper, cupimusque negata ["We always resist prohibitions, and yearn for what is denied us."].
..........— Baruch Spinoza (1623-1677), Dutch philosopher. Tractatus Politicus, ch. 10.
