The "Or We'll Kill You" test

A new blog I just found puts "The Law" into its true perspective:

If you talk about a law, and put “or else I’ll kill you” after the law in question, and it doesn’t sound reasonable, then we all need to sit down and have a long discussion about whether we really need that law, or not.

Don’t rape women, or else I’ll kill you.  Check!

Don’t steal (thereby taking away whatever portion of life that person spent earning the item you stole from them) or else I’ll kill you.  Check!

Don’t drive your car without a seatbelt, or else I’ll kill you…  FAIL!

Welcome Nothing About Everything to the rolls.
