In recent times we have seen the introduction of new laws to control the public based on health and protecting the vulnerable, there has been resistance to this but the government managed to leverage perceived necessity to force through these additional laws.

It can be argued that the reason for laws is lack of discipline, people have personal responsibilities with a duty to one another, this duty can be converted into discipline as seen in Far East Asian societies but to be adhered to in western societies it required statuary regulations. For this who oppose new laws rarely include how discipline can be used to replace legislation.

Discipline can be either internal, through personal acknowledgment of responsibility, or external, through punitive measures to assert consequence.

Those who resist centralised authority rarely address the need for some form of regulation, this lack of discipline is counter product and ultimately destructive to creating meaningful discourse leading to change.
