    I was just curious about what exactly makes someone bound to the laws we make when they seem to exist outside of morality. The reason I am asking is because of this video called "I'm allowed to rob you" that I saw on you tube. I would like to know what everyone thinks about this since it seems to be a rather radical idea.
