Such things were allowed to happen in the past, and they surely will happen again in the future if steps aren’t taken to prevent that.Although it’s not seen by many people, there are better alternatives out there, my favorite of which being Anarchy. Of course there are those who strongly believe that such a thing is impossible, that it’s invertible to have laws and hierarchies when they even exist in nature. But are we not more civilized, are our mental capacities and...
