So whats everyones opinion on this... Should a government exist in a society to do whats right for the population or should it do what the people want. While i was paying my... uhm... speeding ticket... that i was framed for... i got to thinking about something. I bet if you asked everyone in the city, you would probably get a majority of the people to say that speed limits should be greatly increased or abolished. This could also be true in say, P2P illegal content trading. You can probably get, at some point, enough people (a majority) to say any and all trading should be legal over P2P networks no matter what the content is. This makes me wonder something. Should the government and laws be in place to do whats right for people or should they be in place to do what the people want. And lets think about the possible places where the idea could go. Public sex? hard-drug use? public drunkenness? cell phone use during the course of driving???
