If murder was entirely legal, would society descend into anarchy, or would we all be much nicer to each other?

I don't think you have quite the right definition of anarchy. Anarchy is everyone just following basic rules just because of their agreement to do so.

I agree completely with wastd.... Anarchy isn't always riots everywhere and a lot of crime.

umm....since murder is also ethically wrong..i think many people would still rather not kill...though there are a few asses out there that would be dead if i had the chance...lets see...about 10 i can think of...

I think that we'd be nicer with out all these common sense laws sitting around. I mean, would YOU go out of your way to give someone the bird while driving if they might kill you and get away with it?

Id kill, kill and then kill some more

if someone wants to kill someone else they probably would do it either way, but i definetly think there'll be more deaths which is sad. Aren't we all just pathetic?

I think at that point the government would desolve. That's the last law I'd expect them to give up. But yes, falcon, if murder were legal, I'm sure everyone would really try not to piss anyone else off.

I kinda would like to go back to Ancient Japan where you (samurai) could kill someone for being rude.

I agree, I would be alot nicer and other crimes would probably drop dramatically. I know that I wanted to kill someone whenever my car got broken into!

I've not seen the stats myself, but two people have told me that in tribal societies, where there is no policing, the murder rates are startlingly high. They're apparantly something like an order of magnitude more frequent then in westernised countries.

best question EVER!

wastd and rancid, you are correct, but so is falcon. there are two meanings to the word. i would think if murder were legal, many people would be doing it. daily. it would be very bad.

maybe it should be legal when you turn 18. that way it'd be like ciggarettes. Kids turning 18 would go out and get a big knife when they turn 18, just cause now they can legally kill some one. but hopefully they'd realise they didn't really like it that much, and never do it again. Or they'd just go on a frenzy, and kill every one who had ever pissed them off, like their 1st grade teacher(if they hadn't been offed already), childhood bully cops, exes, et cetera. Anyway you *slice it* (haha) ciggarettes are bad! And uh...San dimas highschool football rules!

I think the human race would die out.
