"The immoral cannot be made moral through the use of secret law.
I believe in the principle declared at Nuremberg in 1945: "Individuals have international duties which transcend the national obligations of obedience. Therefore individual citizens have the duty to violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from occurring."
Here's the problem: *abuse* and *the gov't hates dissent*
There are so many BS laws that the average person breaks multiple laws without knowing or thinking about it. Laws that shouldn't be there.
When the gov't knows everything you do, you can be easily charged and bankrupted by the resulting expense defending yourself. The charges could come from some bureaucrat with a wild hair up his butt, a rival politician or a rival businessman.
Your phone conversations and GPS records or emails can show that you regularly do 85 mph, or remove your catalytic converter, or pay a handyman cash circumventing state taxes, or installed an illegal turbo kit.
Here's an example of abuse:
Former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer was charged with the almost-never-enforced law of "transporting a prostitute across state lines". He was surveilled by a new Patriot Act provision that banks have to report "suspicious activity" involving withdrawing $3,000 cash per month. He was probably a victim of a political vendetta.
And here's a video about numerous regulatory laws, and folks being bankrupted:
