But thats the funny thing about it! People cant take care of themselves! People are basicly sheepdogs with a piece a shrapnel sticking out of their bonts when it comes to thinking "whats best?".
And besides, what about the fact that there are plenty of naughty people out there who find enjoyment in taking away the life of others? Say for the sake of example... me? Who will stop me from killing you and your family, wearing your skin, and eating your organs?
In a place of Anarchy, certianly not "the law".
One last thing, explain to me how that quote from Full Metal Alchemist has any relevance to this argument?
