We Do What We Want to Do

It seems like we can’t always do exactly what we want to do when we want to do it. Because we coexist with other people, we have had to come to agreements on some things that we do and how and when we do them. But we make those agreements because we want to. We make laws to document our agreements with other citizens and the consequences of not sticking to our agreements. Most of us obey those laws. We obey them because we want to. We act in accordance with the law because we want to get along with other people and live without conflicts with our neighbors, not just because the police make us. That would take a police man or woman for every citizen who had to be forced to obey the law for as long as they were being forced to do it. Making us do something we don’t want to do is very difficult and takes a lot of time and effort. If the force that makes us do it lets up for a second, we return to doing what we want to do.

Doing the Right Thing
and Achieving All Your Goals at the Same Time
