No one is en­ti­tled to do ex­actly as they please

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7DAYS -

I couldn’t help but com­ment on some of the most pre­pos­ter­ous, hi­lar­i­ous and ju­ve­nile com­ments I read in the last cou­ple of days about the free­doms that a few peo­ple think they are en­ti­tled to. No hu­man has the ab­so­lute free­dom to do as she/he pleases; only an­i­mals have the ab­so­lute right to nu­dity and free­dom, whereas hu­mans will and should al­ways be gov­erned by rules and reg­u­la­tions which is the cor­ner­stone of any civilised so­ci­ety. Laws are so­cial pro­to­cols, they are made to en­sure that hu­mans live in a con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment of so­cial or­der and dis­ci­pline. For those in­ter­ested, there are three types of laws: The Laws of Re­al­ity which are im­posed on so­ci­ety by God or Na­ture (If you get be­tween a mother Bear and her cub, you know the Nat­u­ral con­se­quences). The Laws of So­ci­ety, a com­mon un­der­stand­ing of which en­ables smooth in­ter­ac­tion be­tween peo­ple, and the Laws of Author­ity, which are im­posed by the au­thor­i­ties to pro­tect and safe­guard so­ci­ety and to han­dle civil and crim­i­nal in­frac­tions. So folks, you can­not have it both ways, ei­ther you re­spect and fol­low the laws of hu­mans or go to some for­saken jun­gle where the laws of the jun­gle, nu­dity and deca­dence reign. Ge­orge UAE
