Laws supplant anarchy

In response to Mr. (Tim) Murphy’s letter to the editor (Reader Input, Sept. 26). He has this whole thing backward. Until the French Revolution he could have lived this way. For thousands of years we did live like animals. Man had every right to pillage and plunder if he had the most money and biggest army. They felt they had the right to do whatever they wanted. England was doing this to the American Colonies. We fought the revolutionary war for the rights of everyman. Government has always been formed to avoid anarchy. We have laws that require a man be treated fairly. People are not supposed to be able to do anything they want or feel like doing for their righteous reward. Dave Hungerford, Auburn
