bohor: (Visiting Tate)
This seemed like an interesting question to put forth and see how people responded. The question is this: Would you do something that was (currently) completely legal that you felt, for whatever reason, should be illegal? Assume:
     - It's not legal just because of some loophole. It's an activity that people are aware of and, despite being controversial and many people disagreeing over its morality, is accepted as legal.
     - It will have a vague overall harmful effect on society (in whole or a specific part of it), but the consequences are not immediately obvious. You would benefit from doing it, but at the small expense of many other people.
     - It would not be to get something you have to have to survive, or depriving of anybody of something they would require to survive.
     - It's something you would have to make an active decision to engage in, not something that would happen just because you were passive or didn't make an effort to avoid.
     - Your decision to participate or abstain probably has a negligible impact on the activity itself or its effects. In other words, even if you don't do this, other people are going to keep doing it.
