The worth of the rule of law

Another letter-writer in today's San Antonio Express-News:

We have laws for a reason: to offer an environment of safety and prosperity for all citizens of this country. Should we all begin to rationalize which laws should or should not be obeyed, based on our own beliefs, and act upon those reasonings, we would, in fact, have no laws at all.
Yep, that really puts those agitating for the breaking of the new Arizona immigration law in a whole new light. They can say what they want, but the fact remains that illegal immigrants are breaking our laws. One wonders which other laws they will break, and how they'll rationalize that. I saw something the other day that made the comparisons to Nazi Germany look like the insanity they are -- if the law is THAT bad, why are people still clamoring to get in? It was the direct opposite for Nazi Germany -- most of those folks wanted to get OUT.
