yeah government extortion and profiling. In PA a motorcyclist does not even need a helmet. In NY they do. But point is they are concerned for our safety. When we are in a vehicle with airbags, shatter resistant glass, crumple zones, four doors, and a roof. Yet if you climb on a two wheeled rocket, and hurl yourself down the road, you are perfectly safe. How stupid! wake up! people petition to change the seat belt laws! .

Of the Limits to the Authority of Society over the Individual


WHAT, then, is the rightful limit to the sovereignty of the individual over himself? Where does the authority of society begin? How much of human life should be assigned to individuality, and how much to society? 1
Each will receive its proper share, if each has that which more particularly concerns it. To individuality should belong the part of life in which it is chiefly the individual that is interested; to society, the part which chiefly interests society. 2
Though society is not founded on a contract, and though no good purpose is answered by inventing a contract in order to deduce social obligations from it, every one who receives the protection of society owes a return for the benefit, and the fact of living in society renders it indispensable that each should be bound to observe a certain line of conduct towards the rest. This conduct consists, first, in not injuring the interests of one another; or rather certain interests, which, either by express legal provision or by tacit understanding, ought to be considered as rights; and secondly, in each person’s bearing his share (to be fixed on some equitable principle) of the labors and sacrifices incurred for defending the society or its members from injury and molestation. These conditions society is justified in enforcing, at all costs to those who endeavor to withhold fulfillment. Nor is this all that society may do. The acts of an individual may be hurtful to others, or wanting in due consideration for their welfare, without going the length of violating any of their constituted rights. The offender may then be justly punished by opinion, though not by law. As soon as any part of a person’s conduct affects prejudicially the interests of others, society has jurisdiction over it, and the question whether the general welfare will or will not be promoted by interfering with it, becomes open to discussion. But there is no room for entertaining any such question when a person’s conduct affects the interests of no persons besides himself, or needs not affect them unless they like (all the persons concerned being of full age, and the ordinary amount of understanding). In all such cases there should be perfect freedom, legal and social, to do the action and stand the consequences. FOR EXAMPLE: ME NOT WEARING MY SEAT BELT AFFECTS ONLY ME, AND THEREFORE MY SOCIETY SHOULD HAVE NO AUTHORITY OR REASON TO FORCE ME TO WEAR IT.

Geesh, be safe & buckle up. And, yes it's stupid we have a no helmet law for cycles but we got them for bikes & trikes.

No helmets for motorcycles is a form of birth control. Where are the pro-lifers?
