The Law: Honesty

It's been a long day. I am still in my office. Here is my quote of the night:

No law will make an honest man dishonest, nor will any law cause dishonest men to become honest. Laws may scare dishonest men from doing dishonest acts, but at what cost? All laws increase the chances of an honest man getting caught in the government's or a lawyer's web. All laws also provide paper ammunition to an honest man's enemies. If some laws have no relation to improving honesty and morality in society, then the case for eliminating laws rather than passing new ones becomes clear.

Yes, it needs refining. I'll work on it.

Please do. I want to put that on a t-shirt (it's too long for a bumper sticker).
