Sure. Just as well I did not start editing my ideas straight into the
wiki then eh?

Sure, that's a good sentence to add. Some things, when written/read
appear as self evident common sense (to some of us), yet it is evident
that some such things are not self evident and are not "just common
sense" to some people. At least not until they read them :)

Agreed. The state of (lack of) self-responsibility within our laws is
a blight upon the human race. Nearly every mug who could "get out of"
a (most often unjust) parking fine or speeding fine or jaywalking or
public incitement or _ _ _ charge, by blaming someone else (the
government, the police, the courts etc), has done so, and so has
contributed to the degeneration of our laws with respect to self
responsibility, of conscience, of inner authority etc... Of course
those unjust laws themselves are also direct contributors to the
ongoing degeneration. We more and more become subservient to the
external authority of an 'almighty' "statute law".

Sad indeed.

Some one else who's still reading - please step up to start a new
thread, picking out the possbily useful FAQ additions in this thread
(adding your own personal magic as you are able).
