The thing is to stop being dependent on outside agencies by becoming responsible and self-regulating. Once we assume ultimate responsibility for ourselves and others, we will always act in ways that serve each other in a positive way.Regulation is merely a blunt tool to stop people doing stupid or crazy things, but in a properly educated society, this is no longer necessary. We can cultivate appropriate behaviour through education, not brute force.
There’s a bit of a chicken and egg thing going on here. Some people believe changing the environment will bring change in people. Others believe changing people’s behaviour must happen first.

My mother, in all her wisdom, always told me it was rude to answer a question with a question. For the most part, she was right. (Though maybe she was just fed up with me asking ‘why?’ all the time!) What she was referring to really was answering a question such as “Where’s your bicycle?” with something as glib and smart-alecky as “Why do you want to know?” or something like that.
