This prepper precept is one I teach often when discussing why laws are written they way they are.

Common sense cannot be legislated. Laws are made in a vacuum by people that don’t always fully understand the problems. I don’t go  looking to laws to see if I CAN do something.  My right to liberty says I can do whatever I want.  That is unless a law specifically prohibits it.  However, depending on the situation, I’d rather be in jail than dead.

I am no anarchist.  Actually, in my circle of friends I am the annoying one that mentions the law.  So I tend to be the guy that prevents us from doing the cool things we want to do.  I know prison first hand and it is not for me.  Fortunately, I can handle prison much better than living with knowing a loved one got hurt because I was afraid to break a rule.

Remember that just because common sense cannot be legislated that does not believe senators and congress-critter that think islands can tip over if you put too many people on them sure will try.

These precepts are my creed, and having prepper precepts guides me when I face tough choices.  A wise man once told me that when facing a moral problem, the right choice is usually the action you don’t want to take.

I am not a pollyanna person that is wishy washy or blindly follows rules, heck I have a little rebellious streak and love to know the WHY of rules, but I do respect and understand the need for law and know how vital it is for a society to have a moral code.

By knowing what I believe in you can know how I will act. This is very important in times of stress.  If you don’t want to read these precepts one by one, the completed list can be found here: Completed 27 Prepper Precepts.
