    Subjective perspective, brah.
    Alright, I thought you meant that in your view, breaking the law cannot be inherently right or wrong in general, not just applying it to you.

    I'm sure other people find breaking the law (in and of itself) to be wrong, but I do not. So if that is what you are clearing up, consider it cleared.

    I think it's wrong to break the law. Laws are made for the overall and greater good of all of mankind, not for the individuals benefit.

    Without exception, under almost any circumstance?

    Someone has a family member captive and they tell you that you have to taser an old lady to get for family member back safely.

    A less extreme circumstance would be if you would break the traffic laws to speed to the hospital to get an injured friend help.

    Right or wrong is too subjective and ambiguous. The majority of people would break the law if it was beneficial for them to do so, under "dire circumstances".

    Not if you're religious and exist in a world of universal morals.

    You are in the middle of the desert. There is no one for miles. You come to a stop sign. You stop.

    Do you stop because it's the right thing to do?
    Or do you stop because you're conditioned to stop at stop-signs?

    With the family member thing, obviously I would call the professionals (the law enforcement folks) so that I don't have to take the law into my own hands. But if it were a spur of the moment thing where I was forced to react without time to think first I'd probably taser the old lady. and now I'm going to burn in hell for saying that. thanks a lot ajblaise.

    I stop at stop signs for both reasons usually, but I have been in the situation you describe in the middle of nowhere and there's something about it that makes me actually WANT to stop. Perhaps I stop because I can easily get away with not stopping or because it's kinda funny to stop and linger there for a few extra seconds. I dunno. I always stop in that situation though.
