‘Go Topless Day’ in NYC proved we need few laws to get people to behave decently to each other

Here is the cutline for the photo I’ll not run:

The GoTopless Pride Parade as part of the worldwide Go Topless Day campaign in New York City on August 23, 2015. It has been legal for women to go topless in New York City since 1992.

Yet, photo after photo of women parading around in less than their underwear. On this special day, although, as the cutline says, going topless every single day is perfectly legal. We do not have cases of secretaries going to work downtown in the altogether,

So, the libertarians were right. People don’t wear clothing because there is a law telling them to do so. I know that the fact that I don’t rape and murder is not because there’s a law against it. I don’t want to. And neither do my neighbors.

When people disobey these laws, it’s not because they sat down and weighed the pros and cons and decided the risk was worth it.  If people did that, there would NOT be more murder or nudity. People just don;t want to.

  1. The moral foundation which you are sort of are alluding to is borne of the environment in which they were raised, good responsible parenting and neaighbors sets the basis in which citizens are indoctrinated. Following laws that tell you what is not acceptable beahvior by extension what you can do in many situations but are not all encompassing.
