Restrictions to control behaviors: When is enough . . . enough?
The idea that we can legislate, litigate, restrict, take away things or rights in an effort to control behaviors seems to be common and becoming more prevalent in our society. At the same time, common courtesy, that personal touch, care for your 'fellow man' seems to be disappearing. Are these two things related? Is it a fact that the more restrictions we place upon society as the measure of enforcing appropriate and accepted behaviors, we are actually creating a society dependent upon those very restrictions to provide their guidelines for living? Shouldn't we be re-educating society on how common courtesy and care for your 'fellow man' provides those same guidelines?
