Enforcing Private Morals Simply Doesn’t Work

By Scott Cunningham | Crypto & Things | 17 Jun 2019


Enforcing private morals rarely ever works out. Just look at prohibition and you can see all the evidence you need for this. This can pertain to any private moral that the majority does not hold.

So for example, enforcing any private religious morals by law on everyone including those not following that religion will likely lead to conflict. This should be obvious that this is the case because the police will enforce the legislation passed by politicians who are meant to represent the majority. When legislation doesn’t represent the majority and it rarely does when enforcing private morals, naturally people have to hate the police as they did throughout prohibition. The same phenomenon can happen for anything else.

Let’s look at LSD, something Alan Watts spoke of even 60-70 years ago he knew that trying to police it would enable so many worse things. LSD can be hidden in anything and thus allows the police to search through and uncover anything and everything to enforce this private moral.

Private morals are simply those that don’t concern society or the government such as what drugs you indulge given you don’t affect other people.

Let me know what you think about this in the comments!
