This is what makes religion such a dangerous and defeatist process--the idea that, from the get-go, we are "fallen". We are human, we do things someone else doesn't like from time to time. But unless we actually impinge on those peoples' lives directly, what we do is none of their business unless we are breaking laws.
I can't argue with that.
But should we race towards the bottom? I would like to drive to work doing 100 mph some mornings. On occasion there are some people I would like to kick in the head (including my own teenage progeny at regular intervals).
In the end we try and overcome our fallen nature and do the good things while abstaining from the bad.
Society's laws have meaning. They help to form our conscience.
