Bad Behavior Must Be Tolerated

For total freedom to do whatever you feel like at the moment, all you need to do is remove immediate consequences.

Until recent times, a punch or slap restored order to those misbehaving, whether from lack of care not to encroach upon others or aggressive deliberate acts. This kept citizens polite and respectful towards one another, as any bad act was subject to retaliation. All men could potentially hit miscreants.

The cunning enemies of civilization didn't like it when bad people could be stopped, so branded punches as violence and banned them, as if adults can't handle being hit when appropriate to stop their madness. By making a punch illegal, all are forced to accept antisocial behavior without any practical remedy for stopping it.

The jackals grew bold knowing they could do anything and others had no recourse except to tolerate it. Soon everything wicked had to be tolerated, and this passive acceptance of everything destructive, ugly, and abominable was called a virtue and enlightened.

If you strike down pestilent scoundrels, they will play victim, using law to have you punished and suing you for free money -- but if you do not strike them down, you are tolerating one more act against civilization.
