Yes but the fundamental freedom to decide what goes into your body is
worth more than any otherlaw on the planet.

Have you done a poll on peoples living preferences?

If you are free tomove and to talk to people and have gatherings what
more do you need?

Fun is in company.

I've read many tales of the great comraderie built up by people in
countries you see as bad.

Then you see all the hollywood films about the life of the US. It's only
good for those on high incomes in safe neighbourhoods with good lawyers.
For the minorites and the thousands in jail for drug offences it's more
draconian than any orwelliam nightmare.
