Mr Hobbes to the rescue!
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hobbes#Leviatha...
In Leviathan, Hobbes set out his doctrine of the foundation of states and legitimate governments – originating social contract theory. Leviathan was written during the English Civil War; much of the book is occupied with demonstrating the necessity of a strong central authority to avoid the evil of discord and civil war.
Beginning from a mechanistic understanding of human beings and the passions, Hobbes postulates what life would be like without government, a condition which he calls the state of nature. In that state, each person would have a right, or license, to everything in the world. This, Hobbes argues, would lead to a "war of all against all" (bellum omnium contra omnes). The description contains what has been called one of the best known passages in English philosophy, which describes the natural state mankind would be in, were it not for political community:[14]
"In such condition, there is no place for industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain: and consequently no culture of the earth; no navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by sea; no commodious building; no instruments of moving, and removing, such things as require much force; no knowledge of the face of the earth; no account of time; no arts; no letters; no society; and which is worst of all, continual fear, and danger of violent death; and the life of man, solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short."
— "Chapter XIII.: Of the Natural Condition of Mankind As Concerning Their Felicity, and Misery.", Leviathan
In such a state, people fear death, and lack both the things necessary to commodious living, and the hope of being able to toil to obtain them. So in order to avoid it people accede to a social contract and establish a civil society.
According to Hobbes, society is a population beneath a sovereign authority, to whom all individuals in that society cede some rights for the sake of protection. Any abuses of power by this authority are to be accepted as the price of peace. There is no doctrine of separation of powers in Hobbes's discussion.[15]
According to Hobbes, the sovereign must control civil, military, judicial, and ecclesiastical powers.
So an opinion of a dead guy makes your gubment legitimate? Grasping at straws here.

here is an exerp from social contract theory;

legitimacy of the authority of the state over the individual .[1]
Social contract arguments typically posit that individuals have
consented, either explicitly or tacitly, to surrender some of their
freedoms and submit to the authority of the ruler or magistrate
(or to the decision of a majority), in exchange for protection of
their remaining rights . The question of the relation between
natural and legal rights , therefore, is often an aspect of social
contract theory.

First the elements of a contract are not present, and even if it was a legitimate contract it is breached by the fact that there is no duty of the government to protect anyone.

I did so, today morning.
I made the youngest maid sit on my face (you know I like 'em young...as young as 16 or 17).
Yes, Mon, the youngest maid sat on my face, today.
As I was about to use my tongue, she pissed on my face.
I gagged and spanked her bum and turned her around so that I could get rear entry with my finger and guess what she farted on my face and then it became too much for me to bear and I tossed her on to the floor.
I remain a virgin.

<quoted text>There were no prisons in ancient Israel, people were stoned to death for serving idols. In modern days, they probably will be imprisoned. Forsaking the Lord also means forsaking his law.
That might have been the condition for a very short time, when Moses was alive and may be some decades after him.

But slowly bulk of Jews fell into idolatry as OT books confirm and the punishment was left only in the books and not in practice.

That holds for most of Jewish and Christian laws, they exist on paper but not used. People read them and say Amen and kill the holy scriptures.

But when the come out of Church and Synagogues (and mosques too, to be honest)... they just forget what they read said Amen to.

Most "religious people" on this earth come under the definition of "Hypocrites".

Those who ask for those laws are termed as Fundamentalists and Extremists.

On the other hand those who do not follow laws passed by their assemblies and parliaments are called as "rebels" .

So it is a complete transformation, our Political Leaders have become our Law givers , they have become like a god to the people.

EL, ALLAHA & ALLAH - INTERDEPENDENT BABYLONIAN SADISTIC BEINGS:

1) El is not Hebrew.

2) El is a title/word borrowed by the sadistic Hebrew patriarchs from the barbaric Baal-worshipping cults of the ancient cultures that pre-date the Tanakh. YHVH is a morphed form of El.

3) Allaha of Aramaic, Jesus' crazed heavenly father, is the same Babylonian El.

4) Allah is a variant of the title/word El.

5) Both El as well as Allah are demonic beings.

6) El is a bloodthirsty being of pre-Hebrew days, while Allah, a related or the same ferocious being as El, was worshipped by the pre-Islamic Arabs together with 369 gods/beings in the Kaaba.

7) All that this fiend Muhammad did was to chose Allah from the 360 gods/beings that were venerated by the pre-Islamic Arabs and make it (Allah) his only god.

Yes, we need some order. And don't forget this classic:

Lord of the Flies is a novel by Nobel Prize-winning English author William Golding about a group of British boys stuck on an uninhabited island who try to govern themselves with disastrous results. Its stances on the already controversial subjects of human nature and individual welfare versus the common good earned it position 68 on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 most frequently challenged books of 1990–1999.[2]

Straw argument - we werent talking about laws of physics. We were talking about civil laws and the state

Ask Will Smith is it is illegal to not pay your taxes

Just shows that you never received any type of formal education in political theory.(How could you - you are a whackadoo??)

Hobbes is considered a philosopher of the Conservatives...

rabbee: well for one thing, it is the evening dawn of sunday in Yeroosalem. and so Shabbos is over, before you know it. Shabbos is not to be celebrated, by our worldly loco time standards.

and for another thing, what are we commanded to talk about on Shabbos? can anyone truly answer this question, according to TheTorah? since the chances are, you all do not know.

It’s good to be Alex Jones. Matt Drudge, the conservative Web entrepreneur and news aggregator, proved prophetic when he predicted that 2013 would be “the year of Alex Jones.” The longtime conspiracy broadcaster is finally breaking into the mainstream consciousness after a buzzy interview with Piers Morgan and his Boston bombing conspiracy, and traffic to his websites has never been higher. The conspiracy business is booming.

And make no mistake, it is a business. That’s not to say that Jones isn’t a believer — there are easier ways to make money — but Jones has built a multi-platform new media empire in his Austin, Texas, Free Speech Systems LLC that reaches millions of believers and promises advertisers that it will “direct lucrative buyers to you from our daily audience of active enthusiasts.” And all told, Jones is very likely raking in millions.

Jones didn’t invent the business model, but he may have perfected it. He comes from a long line of what historian Robert Goldberg calls “conspiracy entrepreneurs” that stretches back through at least the early Red Scare, and up through the John Birch Society, the JFK assassination and the Roswell incident to the Jones school of the New World Order. But while others merely got by on the sale of their books and tapes and lectures to a niche audience, Jones has industrialized conspiracy for a mass audience.

Jones’ company broadcasts around the clock from his state-of-the art, 7,600-square-foot radio and TV studio that employs 15 people and cleared $1.5 million in revenue in 2009, according to a Texas Monthly profile. But a lot has changed since then. In 2011, he launched the Infowars Nightly News TV program to anchor his new subscriber TV network, which has expanded its lineup as traffic to his websites and general visibility has exploded, meaning his revenue is probably much bigger than it was just four years ago....
