    If it takes force, then we aren't really civilized, are we?

    I think laws are necessary because there are people who aren't that civilized in the first place.

    We are not civilized because this planet is run by criminals. It is important to remove these criminals (the financial industry and their tools - the politicians) from power to become civilized again.

    Because if you have everybody obeying their own moral code - or immoral code - then there would be anarchy and chaos.  Obviously we see this to some extent anyway, especially as the 'justice' system can often be corrupt, but having some sort of outward code to abide by means that there is some sort of protection for the innocent, better than nothing.  Though I wouldn't say this necessarily makes us civilised, just restraining barbarism to a certain extent.

    It has been proven over, and over, and over again that people are animals and will not behave unless force is imposed upon them.

    And the failure of socialist and dictatorial governments shows that neither of those models will work either.  People are selfish, greedy animals.   The veneer of civility is very thin.  Get used to it.

    I do not any government to tell me how I should treat my neighbor.

    My own livelihood is enough to dictcate this.

    So is the  basic precept of when able, accept help when in need.

    Education can reduce some of the evils of the world, but sadly, it's not enough. The threat of force  and the use of it are necessary in order to make civilization possible. The main reason for this is that there is a gap between what we know is the right action and actually doing it. Too often we fall short of what is needed. The threat of force is not a perfect solution. But, then again, humanity isn't perfect.
